Farm Credit of the Virginias recently determined that there was a ballot mailing list error related to the 2021 Board of Directors and nominating committee election. As a result, the ballots for this election sent to the eligible voting stockholders on October 12, 2021, must be resent to the entirety of the mailing list, and all of the votes must be recast. New ballots will be mailed to all voting stockholders on or about November 19, 2021, and voting stockholders should be on the lookout for a new replacement ballot in the mail.
