INSTRUCTIONS ON VOTING FOR A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE:
At the Polls: Voters may ask a precinct board member for a list of the write-in candidates. To cast a vote for a qualified write-in candidate, voters must write the name of the qualified write-in candidate and the office title in the space provided on the write-in portion of their ballot, located at the top of the ballot.
Voting by Mail: To cast a vote for a qualified write-in candidate when voting by mail, the voter must use the inside portion of the gray write-in ballot secrecy sleeve. The secrecy sleeve with the ballot enclosed is then placed in the lavender return envelope.
COUNTING BALLOTS WITH WRITE-IN CANDIDATE VOTES:
Only votes cast for qualified write-in candidates will be counted. Votes cast for both a write-in candidate and candidates appearing on the ballot for a single contest exceeding the total votes
allowed for that contest is an overvote. Contests with an overvote will not be counted. Because each ballot containing a write-in vote must be set aside for manual review, no portion of any ballot containing a write-in vote is counted on Election Night. Write-in candidate results are made available at the conclusion of the Official Canvass. By law, election officials have up to 28 days following the election to complete the Official Canvass and certify the election results.
For more information regarding write-in candidates, please contact the RR/CC Norwalk Headquarters at (562) 466-1310.
