For more information, pull a Write-In Candidate packet from the website for all the forms and details. Write-in candidates are not required to gather signatures to qualify for the ballot. However, Write-in candidates are still required to form a Committee (if applicable), file a nomination paper and a Financial Disclosure Statement (if applicable).
Only candidates who file before the deadline will be considered official write-in candidates. Only official write-in candidates will have their names posted in the Vote Centers and on the website. Only official write-in candidates that have any votes cast for them counted. A list of write-in candidates is not sent with the early or vote by mail ballots and it is up to the candidates to advertise their candidacy.
