FLAGSTAFF—The list of write in candidates is final and following is that list. We tried to find the web sites of the candidates to add. If your web site is not listed, please leave a comment on this article.
Patty Hansen of the Coconino County Elections office advised in an email that it does not matter if you write first name last or vice-versa, or even if you misspell the name. If the write in board can determine the intent of the voter, it counts as a vote for that candidate. It is helpful, however, to be as accurate as possible.
She also notes that you can request to have an early ballot be mailed to you by going to www.coconino.az.gov/elections or call 928-679-7860 or toll free 800-793-6181. The deadline to request an early ballot be mailed to you is 5 pm on August 17th.
This applies to writing in all candidates for office. Ensure you write their name in the appropriate slot on the ballot and darken in the oval.
This list applies to current write in candidates for the primary only. Write in candidates must have registered with the Coconino County Elections office by July 18th. A write in vote for a person who has not registered and is not on this list will not be counted. Anyone wishing to vie for an office in the General Election in November may still register as a write in for that election.
