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
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
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.
