New Campaign ‘I Farm I Vote’ Encourages Farmers to Vote Nov. 3

The best way for the concerns of rural communities to be recognized on the local, state and national levels is for farmers and other rural residents to get out and vote.

To that end, Virginia Farm Bureau Federation has launched its “I Farm I Vote” campaign.

“All 140 seats in the Virginia General Assembly are up for election this year. It’s crucial for farmers to let their voices be heard and elect people who will make decisions in agriculture’s best interests,” said Kelly Pruitt, VFBF grassroots coordinator.

This summer Farm Bureau will be encouraging rural voters to display “I Farm I Vote” signs on their property and take photos with their signs to post to social media with the hashtag #IFarmIVoteVA.

To participate, visit VaFarmBureau.org/PolicyAction/IFarmIVote.aspx to print a sign, or contact a county Farm Bureau office for more information.
