On Friday, the Secretary of State released the official list of write-in candidates for the June 5th Primary Election. The list includes a several candidates from the Peace and Freedom Party and a number of candidates who we’ve seen before;
- Sean McGary (Congress, District 37)
- Gary Clift (State Senate, District 3)
- Lisa Ringer and Mary McIlroy (State Senate, District 9)
- Lee Chauser (State Senate, District 33)
- Gene Ruyle (State Assembly, District 15)
The new Top Two Primary system allows write-in candidates in the primary, but not in November’s General Election.
UPDATED: 5/26/2012 @ 5:00 pm – Of the nine non-statewide races with write-in candidates, six are races that have only a single candidate on the ballot.
