Ballot Proposal

Michigan Farm Bureau is supporting a voter-led petition seeking to repeal a law that allowed the state to seize local control of large-scale wind and solar projects. 

Citizens for Local Choice is leading the bipartisan petition effort to reverse that, with plans to collect enough signatures by May 29 for the proposal to be placed on the November 2024 general election ballot.

If you’re interested in supporting the effort, contact your county Farm Bureau or Michigan Farm Bureau.

AgriPac Endorsed Candidates

Every two years, Michigan Farm Bureau’s political action committee — AgriPac — endorses candidates seeking state or federal office whose positions are compatible with Farm our organization’s policy. These endorsements are rooted in local recommendation made by county Farm Bureau candidate evaluation committees. 

AgriPac will make endorsements in June 2024, ahead of the August primary election.

Candidate Handbook

We need farmers to pursue positions in office and further promote and serve the agriculture community. This handbook is intended to inform members about elected and appointed positions that offer opportunities for representing agriculture in local government.
