Notice of election of district directors. Requires that notice of the date that nominating petitions and the date of the election for soil and water conservation district directors have to be posted in a prominent location at each district office 30 days before the filing date. Districts may use additional means to provide notice to the public of the election of district directors. Currently, such notice has to be published in a newspaper of general circulation with the district. The bill also requires the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board to notify each district that it's the district's responsibility to post such notice. This bill is identical to SB 1324.
