Write-in Instructions & Declaration

Body

​ REQUIREMENTS FOR WRITE IN CANDIDATES


         Please notify the Election Office at least 2 weeks before an election (and before election day) that you will be running an active write-in campaign. 
This will insure that we will accumulate your votes.

         A Declaration form stating that you will accept votes under the names of…………

i.e.  -    Joseph P. Smith

            Joe Smith

            Joseph Peter Smith

            Joe Smyth

            Etc.

 

These names have to be within reason……..we will not accept J. Smith if there is more than one J. Smith (we don’t know whether it is Joseph, James, Jean, Jane, etc.) within a municipality or voting district.  In addition, if you are a Jr. or Sr. and you both reside within the same district we will not accumulate those votes unless they specifically state Jr. or Sr.  We cannot guess at the voter’s intent, it must be clear.​
