SALEM, OR -- The local agriculture community is getting an extra push to vote in Tuesday's election. Jerome Rosa, Executive Director of the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association, says farmers often underestimate their power at the ballot box. He encourages them to be well informed and exercise their right to vote.

 

Rosa says many rural residents don’t feel like their voice is heard. But he points to the 2010 Oregon Governor's race as an example of their importance. “A few years ago, Chris Dudley really could have won the race if the rural communities, particularly eastern Oregon, had came out and voted for him. And that was the difference in the race.” He believes several ballot measures and house races directly impact farmers and ranchers.
