Tobacco referendum scheduled

The referenda will conducted in both states by mail vote, and the eligibility to vote will be the same as the eligibility standards for votes taken on the triennial marketing quota referendum. The voting is limited to active flue-cured producers.

Other tobacco program provisions — such as the disaster lease and transfer of marketing quotas, tobacco prices support and USDA’s inspection activities — will not be affected by the referenda.
