  • When you receive your ballot for November, you’ll see one candidate from a party and a write-in candidate, and you’ll be voting in an election that already has a foregone conclusion.
  • In partisan terms, Republicans will vote for somebody from their party, and that candidate will move to the November general election to face a write-in candidate.

  • Political parties can use write-in candidates to prevent you from casting a ballot in a primary election.
