County receives one write-in candidate during elections

Although his name won’t appear on the ballot in November, Walter Brock is running for the Summit County Recorder.

Brock filed a declaration of write-in candidacy with the County Clerk’s office on Aug. 4. Brock is the only official write-in candidate for this election.

County Clerk Kent Jones said a candidate has to file no later than 60 days before the election to be considered a candidate. To be on the ballot, a candidate must file in March with a partisan office to become a candidate for that party

"In order for us to not waste time, it is a requirement to file a write-in candidacy, much like the other candidates," Jones said. "That way, we know who those candidates are and what offices they are writing in for."

A write-in candidate’s name won’t appear on the ballot, but a line under the County Recorder section will indicate to voters a write-in has filed.

Jones said it is the responsibility of the candidate to notify the public of his desire to run and of the voter to know whose name to write in.

Early voting is taking place now through 5 p.m. on Friday.

Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 4.
