Instructions on Write In Voting


Well folks it has come down to the final hours of this campaign. All I can encourgae you to do at this point is VOTE TOMORROW and take 5 friends, family members or co-workers to the polls with you and WRITE MY NAME IN. Call you favorite talk radio show in the morning and say that you are writing me in. Spell my name aloud on the air.


Spelling is critical.

I am getting a flood of emails asking for instructions on how to write my name on the ballot. I am going to leave this as the top post until after election day. If you need to find out if you are registered or where you are suppossed to go to vote please call your county board of registrars.

Please make certain that you spell my name correctly. Incorrectly spelled names will not count. My name is spelled LORETTA NALL. Write it down and take it with you to the polls. Get your friends and family to do the same.

For all of you out there who plan to vote for me on November 7 here is a sample ballot for the general election.

Sample Ballot 1 (Unmarked) Underneath the Republican and Democratic choices for Governor in eencie weencie print is WRITE IN with an arrow beside it. If you are voting for me then write LORETTA NALL in the blank space and make sure to finish coloring in the broken arrow beside my name.

Sample 2 (MARKED) with my name and filled in arrow.

Ballots are a little different in each county but the basic principle is the same. Underneath the names of Lucy Baxley and Bob Riley there will be a blank box with the words 'write in' beside it. Simply write my name in there and finish the arrow or the box beside it depending on the type of ballot you have. This is the same in the counties where there will be electronic voting. The electronic voting machines will have a blank space just like the paper ballots and you just write my name in.

I have just posted two articles on my website about your instructions for write-in candidates, and your letter to the Alabama Secretary of State concerning counting write-in votes.

I hope this helps.

Thanks, Loretta, but I think some ballots look different. I know the primary ballots in my precinct looked different than that. It may be a county-by-county thing?

Can you stop by the probate judges office there in Tuscaloosa Co and get a sample ballot?

I am not sure the voting mechanism is the same in every county. Here in Tallapoosa Co. the ballot is run through some sort of electronic machine but if that isn't statewide then the ballots may very well be different in different places.

I think the statewide races would be presented the same but it would sure be nice to know for certain.

I'll see if I can pick one up today.

I don't have a scanner, but our sample ballots have bubbles listed by each candidates name and a bubble beside a "Write-in" selection with a line provided.

Loretta Nall said...

Thanks Dan. It helps to know that. I'll update this post to let people know the ballots are different in different places.

You've got my vote! I may not agree with "all" that you stand for... but since I don't agree with anything that comes out of the mouths of the other two "BOOBS"...

Thanks for giving me a choice that I can live with.

Loretta, if you don't make it in Alabama, will you come to Georgia if enough of us write you in?

Don said...

Darn, I was prepared to write in "Boobs Babe" :)
