Vote Now

A lot's at stake for Dakota agriculture in this election. I'm heading to the township hall to vote now.

Today is going to be an interesting day for Dakota agriculture.

It's election day.

In North Dakota, Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.) – one of the chief architects of the last farm bill – may lose his seat to Republican Rich Berg.

In South Dakota, incumbent Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin (D) is in a tough race with Republican Kristi Noem.

In North Dakota, there’s a measure on the ballot that bans high-fence hunting. How it will affect livestock producers has been hotly debated.

There’s also a race for Secretary of Agriculture in North Dakota. The two candidates have very different ideas on how to support agriculture.

I’m headed up to the township hall to vote now. Be sure to get your  “I voted” sticker. It's proof that you have a good right to complain later.
