Election for Conservation District Board of Directors
Conservation districts are local subunits of state government, supervised by boards of directors made up of five individuals. Two of these positions are appointed by members of the Oklahoma Conservation Commission for two-year terms. Three of the positions are elected by registered voters within the conservation district boundaries for three-year terms.
To be eligible as a candidate for conservation district director, an individual must be a registered voter in the district and must have a Cooperator Agreement with the district. The agreement between individuals and the district must be approved by the board of directors during a regular board meeting and must be on file at least 30 days prior to filing for office.
The filing period for Conservation District Director Elected Position No. 2 is scheduled from May 1 to 14. If two or more individuals file for this position, the election will be held on Tuesday, June 2. Information on cooperator agreements and necessary forms for this election can be obtained from the local conservation district office or from the Oklahoma Conservation Commission at 405-521-2384.
