Write-in candidate deadline today UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 3:20 PM

Write-in candidates aren't of much moment. Except in extraordinary circumstances, they rarely get any meaningful votes.

Nonetheless, today is the deadline for write-in candidates. I hope to have a full list later. Roby Brock notes that they include Elvis Presley from Star City, who's running for governor. He joins a Republican, a Democrat, a Green and a write-in neo-Nazi.

UPDATE: Find the assortment of write-ins on the jump.

    Recently, a trove of band business cards from the golden era of Arkansas garage bands was discovered and put on eBay. I was able to purchase some of them, including one by a little known 1960s garage band from Little Rock named The Mercenaries. Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
