Alabama cotton farmers are asking you to vote yes in next week's run-off election.
If passed, amendment one would not let cotton farmers request a refund for the fee they pay for every bale of cotton.
That fee goes to fund cotton research and promotion.
Farmers who ask for the refund still get the same benefits as farmers who don't.
Amendment one would change that.
"If we can't get the legislation passed then what we will get is what we have, which is a mixed bag of trying to gather up money for promotion and research," said Edward White, a local cotton farmer.
Alabama's run-off election is Tuesday, July 15th.
If the amendment is passed, the Alabama Cotton Commission would schedule a vote for cotton farmers to decide the change to the check-off program.
