On the Optical Scan Voting System a line is provided for casting a write-in vote following the name(s) of the candidate(s) or the designation “No Candidate Filed” for each office listed on your ballot.

To accomplish your write-in vote you must print the name of the write-in candidate on the line and darken the oval to the left of the name you write-in.  (See illustration below)

State law requires that Judges of Election do not count any write-in votes for anyone, unless the Judges have been notified by the County Clerk that the “Declaration of Intent to be a Write-in Candidate” has been filed with her office.

This law requires that anyone running as a write-in candidate must file the “Declaration of Intent to be a Write-in Candidate” with the County Clerk’s office by the 61st day prior to the Election, That date being Thursday, September 8th, 2016.

Anyone wishing to run as a write-in candidate must file the form; this holds true in all cases, both where the designation “No Candidate” appears on the Ballot, and where the full number of candidates to be elected appear on the ballot.
