Write-In Candidate Deadline

Oct 22, 2012

Potential ‘write-in’ candidates have less than a week to decide if they want to enter the political frey.  The deadline to be a write-in candidate in the November sixth General Election is this Friday.  Under state law, write-in candidates for any office must file a Declaration of Intent to be a write-in and pay a statutorily prescribed fee.

  Write-I candidates for President and Vice President must also file a list of presidential electors pledged to the candidates.  Write-in votes cast for individual who have not satisfied the filing requirements are not counted.
