NORMAN — Election filing
Oklahoma’s conservation districts will have an election for board members on the 87 local conservation district boards of directors across the state.
The local conservation district board is made up of five individuals who set the priorities for the conservation districts. Three of the members are elected by registered voters within the district and two are appointed by the Conservation Commission upon recommendation by the local conservation district board.
The filing period for the board member position is May 1-14. Candidates must submit a Notification and Declaration of Candidacy form available at go.usa.gov/TjBJ or at the local conservation district office.
To be eligible for the position, a person must be a registered voter within the boundaries of the conservation district and have entered or will enter into a cooperator agreement with the local conservation district.
The conservation district director election will be June 3. Locations of polling places will be determined at the close of the filing period.
