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.
