For the upcoming Morgantown City Council election on April 30th, there are three write in candidates.
This includes candidates Zackery Cruze and Richard Dumas for the 3rd ward and Todd Stainbrook for the 7th ward.
Incumbent council member Ryan Wallace will be moving out of the state and is unable to fulfill another term, but will still be listed on the ballot due to withdrawl deadlines set by the West Virginia Secretary of State.
The city is raising awareness on how to vote for candidates deemed write in.
“On the day of voting, their names are not placed on the ballot, but there is a section on the voting machine that gives the voter the ability to type in that person’s name, to vote for them,” said Christine Wade, City Clerk.
The deadline for additional write in candidates is April 16th.
