According to the latest on the Internet…43 states allow a Write in Ballot for the President of the USA. Which 7 don’t?…Arkansas, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Dakota.
Per Bloomberg…most States require a candidate to register, however; Vermont, Wyoming, Oregon, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Iowa, Delaware, and Alabama do not require registration.
Thirty-five states require that a write-in candidate must submit some form of affidavit and, sometimes, a filing fee at least one month before the election. In North Carolina, these candidates must circulate a petition. Then their names are posted on a list at the polling place, though not on the official ballot. Other write-in votes become trash.
So, my best golden treats are going to “Duck for President”…and why not?!! Duck has a clean bill (ha) of health…he has no funny money anywhere…(He has no money.)…he has no body/company/bird/in his pocket…(He has no pockets or political feathers on his body.)…he’s a possible alternative to those who refuse to cast their vote for either the donkey or elephant candidate…I understand…and if Mr. J or Mrs. Green don’t work either…then practice writing “DUCK” in preparation for voting day.
First debate coming up this Monday, September 26…hold the pate & foie gras.
“A Fresh Bill on Capitol Hill…Duck for President” by Doreen Cronin is a wonderful teaching tool for lower school students. Ms. Cronin additionally wrote Click, Clack, Moo…Cows that Type.
