According to Kathy Diaz, who is in charge of the vote at CDFA, we reached the 40 percent mark late last week!
However, as you all know, the referendum was extended through June 10th, so the voting period continues until then.
While the 40 percent mark is an important milestone, the referendum is not over. Growers who have not voted yet are encouraged to still mail in their ballots.
The outcome of the referendum should be announced a couple of weeks after the vote is over (to allow for the arrival of ballots w/a valid postmark).
Growers who believe they are entitled to vote but did not receive a ballot should call the CDFA Marketing Branch at (916) 900-5018.
