Want to be a US Presidential write-in candidate in 2008?

Choose a state from the list on the right to see that state's requirements to make sure write-in votes for you get counted in the upcoming 2008 US Presidential election.

Wednesday, April 16, 2008


The candidate must file a list of 10 presidential electors and a “Declaration of Candidacy” in the following manner no later than October 21, 2008. The list shall contain one presidential elector from each congressional district and 2 electors from the state at large and the names of the candidates for president and vice president for whom they intend to vote, if elected.*

Because of the clause below, candidates do not actually need to file the list of electors to have votes counted.

In such event, the write−in candidate shall have until 4:30 p.m. on the Friday following the general election to comply with the filing requirements of this subsection.
