The deadline for write-in candidates in Utah is soon: Friday September 9. As a state, Utah had not been on our priority list because of a unique requirement—candidacy paperwork needs to be filed in person with the Lieutenant Governor's office. But we've been thinking...
A handful of states have their filing deadlines in the next few weeks: Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Montana. If you reside in any of those states and you're interested in being an elector, please contact us as soon as possible.
Next up on the deadline calendar is the state of Colorado, whose paperwork is due Thursday July 21. If you're interested in being an elector, please contact us as soon as possible. Write-in forms in Colorado require the signature of the electors as well as those of the candidates, so there's no time to waste.
This post was originally a response to a message on Facebook. While the nominations process is not something we're campaigning on, I felt compelled to offer an explanation of why it's poor reasoning to fall back on the system of primaries and caucuses to defend forcing people to vote for the two major party candidates.
A week ago we identified our first "Priority" states. We've modified that list slightly. New Mexico has been taken off the priority list (click the "Read More" to learn why), and Indiana is now the state we are focusing on. If you know of anyone who would like to serve as a NOTA elector in Indiana, please contact us immediately.
Unfortunately, a write-in campaign isn't as easy as just writing in a name. In many states write-in candidates must file paperwork to be recognized.
We're announcing the first set of states we're focusing on: Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, and New Mexico.
After months of preparation, we are excited to announce our "None of the Above" campaign for the office of President of the United States. Please explore our site, learn more, and join us!
