I am running as a write-in candidate for Flagstaff City Council! What exactly does that mean? As a write-in, I must receive the number of votes equivalent to at least the same number of signatures required for nominating petitions for the same office ... This year, the magic number is 1,602 votes! 

Below is some information on how to complete a write-in vote, where to learn about me as a candidate, and where to find more information pertaining to the election and other topics of interest; please share this information to help me meet (and exceed!) that 1,602 threshold!

What name should I write in on my ballot?

Please write in "Khara House" when voting for your City of Flagstaff Councilmembers! While the Coconino County Recorder has indicated that some variation in spelling may be acceptable, spelling the name in full and correctly helps to avoid the voting board needing to trace the name to an official write-in candidate. A list of write-in candidates will be posted at polling places, so be sure to check the list before casting your vote! (A list of write-in candidates is not provided with early ballots.)

How should I fill out my ballot to make sure my vote is counted?

Please see the below graphic! To vote for me, please be sure to:

  1. Print "Khara House" in full in the space provided for your write-in vote.
  2. Fully fill in the oval next to my name.

(Note: This is a graphic representation of a sample ballot.)

Remember: For a write-in candidate, if you only write the name but forget to fill in the oval, it is not counted as a valid vote!
