Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) Supervisor Elections are special elections, independent of a general election, conducted annually by the Ohio Soil and Water Conservation Commission (OSWCC) pursuant to rules adopted under Chapter 119 and 940 of Ohio Revised Code. Each SWCD is administered by a five-member board of supervisors serving a three-year term. These Supervisors guide the staff and partnering agencies in efforts to implement conservation programs which address management and conservation of soil, water, and related resources. The Ohio Department of Agriculture staff, as official designated agents, oversee local SWCD supervisor elections, on behalf of the OSWCC.
