Hi Tweets,

I just want to follow up on two bills pertaining to King Conservation District elections that are currently active in the state legislature —HB 1910 and HB 1652. They are open for support and/or comment.



Currently, conservation district elections are not included on the regular ballot.

As a result, few people are aware of them, let alone vote in them. Getting them on the ballot would improve awareness of and participation in these elections, but this requires a change in the law.



Both HB 1910 and HB 1652 address this.



HB1910 would require that these elections be placed on the regular ballot. And it removes the requirement that 3 members must be landowners or farm operators.



HB1652 would allow the conservation districts themselves to choose whether to hold their elections on the regular ballot.



If you’re interested, you can use the following links to support and/or comment on these bills:
