A. Write-in votes are not invalidated by writing in the name of a candidate whose name is printed on the ballot unless the election board determines, on the basis of other evidence, that the ballot was so marked for the purpose of identifying the ballot.
B. In order to vote for a write-in candidate, the voter must write in the candidate’s name in the space provided and, in addition, fill in the oval opposite the candidate’s name.
C. Stickers may not be used. Use of stickers can cause that portion of the ballot to be invalidated.
D. Write-in votes shall only be tabulated by person if the total number of write-in votes for an office exceeds the smallest number of votes cast for a candidate for that office whose name is printed on the ballot. (Ord. 2004-45 § 2, 2004. 2004 Code § 2.12.480.)
