NEW TO WRITING IN?
Don't worry. It's surprisingly easy - and incredibly powerful.
Voting with your PEN - and not just sticking with the names on the ballot - is the most powerful kind of vote you can cast. It sends a loud message that we as voters deserve better than hate, and better than the same old tired politics as usual.
Here are the basics you need to know about casting a write-in vote for Justin Hanson.
YES, IT COUNTS!
Justin has submitted paperwork to each election authority to make his candidacy "certified." This means the Election Authorities will be looking for Justin's name written on ballots on election day, and they'll be reporting vote totals for him as a candidate.
And guess what: the spelling doesn't have to be perfect. As long as your intent is clear, your vote and voice WILL be counted.
3 EASY STEPS.
1. Find the race: look for "Third Congressional District - U.S. House of Representatives." Check the bottom: there's a line that says "write in"!
2. Complete the arrow next to the "write in" line (or fill in the bubble, if you're in DuPage or Will Counties). If voting digitally, there's no arrow to worry about.
3. Write (or type) Justin Hanson! Be sure to write both the first and last name.
YOU CAN BRING REMINDERS WITH YOU.
You can bring handy reminders into the voting booth with you: one of our campaign flyers, a silicone campaign bracelet (get one at our campaign headquarters or a local event!), and even your phone with this website pulled up.
Whatever resources you want to bring with you, it is your legal right to be informed and prepared at the ballot box.
