Landowners and residents of Licking County elect the governing body of Licking County Soil & Water Conservation District. The governing body is referred to as the Board of Supervisors. Elections of Supervisors are conducted by the Ohio Soil and Water Conservation Commission pursuant to rules it adopts under Chapter 119. of the Revised Code. The five publicly-elected members of the Board of Supervisors serve, unpaid, for three-year terms.

Enabled under Ohio Revised Code 940, soil and water conservation districts are political subdivisions of the State of Ohio organized along county boundaries. Licking Soil and Water receives non-mandated funding from the Licking County Board of Commissioners, local municipalities and from the state as match funding.

The five Supervisors should represent our county's soil conservation and water conservation needs in rural, suburban and urban settings, on farmland and in our backyards and public lands. They voluntarily work with community members and organizations to encourage wise use of our land and water.

Landowners and residents of Licking County can vote for Supervisors three ways:
1- Via absentee ballot starting Wednesday, October 16th at the Licking Soil & Water office,
2- Via absentee ballot by mail, the downloadable form below, and
3- From 5:30-6:30 p.m., immediately prior to the Licking Soil & Water Annual Banquet at The Grove By the River on Wednesday, November 6th.
