     Anyone who is 60 and older and is a registered voter in the county in which they reside is eligible for candidacy. Those interested in becoming a Silver Haired Legislature representative can request a candidate packet by contacting Kathy Dickerson at Upper Savannah Area Agency on Aging/Aging & Disability Resource Center at864.941.8061.
