The Tobacco Associates Export Promotion Referendum will be conducted by the NC Cooperative Extension Service on Wednesday, January 23 at polling places in each flue-cured producing county, said a release by the Extension.
In Surry County, the polling place will be held at the Surry County Center at 210 North Main Street, Dobson. A two-thirds favorable vote will allow the continuation of an assessment not to exceed 1/5 of one cent per pound to fund export promotion and expansion program for the next marketing year.
