Here's how you can make that happen for your favorite candidate (or candidates!):
Visit http://www.dairyfoundation.org, click on VOTE. Enter your name, the name of the person you want to see in the Finals, and the number of votes you want to cast. Each vote is a $1 donation to the Foundation, and you can cast as many votes as you want.
Check the web site frequently through March 18. Vote often to keep your candidate in the Top 3!
Ask your friends, co-workers, neighbors, mail delivery guy, milk hauler and, really, any person walking by you on the street, to vote.
Cast final votes in person on March 18 at the PDPW Business Conference.
You can make a difference by voting early and often. Tell your friends and co-workers to vote. Have some fun and support future generations of dairy producers!
