How to Vote for John Memmott

As a write-in candidate my name will not appear on the electronic ballot screen or on the absentee paper ballot.

To vote for me on November 8th using the electronic ballot you will need to indicate on the screen that you want to vote for a write-in candidate when you are in the School Board choice section. The screen for voting for Board of Education candidates will contain two blank spaces for potential write-in names. Click on one and a keypad will appear on the screen. Type in “John Memmott” as your choice. When you return to the main screen my name should now be a choice. If the electronic ballot does not behave as expected or if you have any questions while you are voting please ask one of the poll workers.

If you are using the absentee paper ballot there will be a blank space to write in my name for School Board. And don't forget to fill in the bubble before the name! Absentee ballots must be returned postmarked no later than November 7th or delivered directly to the board of elections office no later than the close of polls November 8th.

Please try to spell my name correctly so there will be no confusion about your choice of candidate. Thank you.
