For election purposes, counties are divided into local administrative areas, or LAAs. Each LAA has one producer serve a three-year term on the Farm Service Agency county committee. 

Most counties are divided into three LAAs. Combined counties may have three to eleven LAAs depending on the number of counties combined.

Sebastian/Crawford/Scott County FSA has five LAAs

Each year, an election is held in a LAA to replace the committee member whose three-year term is expiring. In counties with three LAAs, one seat is up for election annually. Combined counties may fill two or more seats during an election year.
