How to vote ‘write-in’

Posted

Time has passed to throw your hat into the ring for the general election coming up on Aug. 4. Even the deadline to be a write-in candidate has passed.  

Early and absentee voting is over at the end of the month.  

Now, it’s up to the voters to make their choice. Still undecided? Or thinking of voting for a write-in candidate?  

Actually, the write-in candidate process is simple, according to administrator of elections Summer Leverette.  

“On the machine, under each office, there is a write-in option. The voter pushes that button, and the next screen appears. The button on each side of the machine corresponds to a letter and the voter simply types in the name and hits done,” she explained.  

There are several write-ins currently on the Aug. 4 ballot:  

—District 7 School Board: Barton Williams, Michael Henry, and Sandra Avent  

—Bell Buckle Alderman: Thomas Humphrey III
