NCHC Equine Referendum

The North Carolina Horse Council plans to hold an equine referendum to extend the Horse Industry Promotion Assessment which was first authorized in 1999. The referendum will be conducted in all of North Carolina's 100 counties and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians on March 8, 2017.
Polling places will be set up in each county Cooperative Extension office. Horse owners will be able to vote on whether or not to extend, for ten years, a $4.00 per ton assessment being paid by manufacturers of horse feed sold in North Carolina.

Polling places will be open during regular business hours in each Cooperative Extension Service office. Any horse owner/leassor, over the age of nine, can vote. There will also be an absentee balloting system put in place for owners who are not able to get to the Extension Offices on March 08, 2017.

Davidson County Extension Office (301 E. Center Street, Lexington) will be open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. If you are unavailable on the day of the referendum, there is an absentee ballot that you can cast through March 7 at the Extension Office.

There are several documents attached with additional information regarding the referendum for your information.
