Secretary of the State Denise Merrill has released the complete list of registered write-in candidates for the November 3rd municipal election. Write-in candidates do not appear on the ballot but voting machines are programmed to flag ballots marked with votes for write-ins that are later counted by hand, as long as the write-in candidates are registered with the Secretary of the State.
The final deadline to register to vote by mail or in-person at town or city offices comes up Tuesday.
In Kent, there is a write in candidate for the Board of Finance: John Mauer.
The New Milford Mayoral race will also have a write in candidate: Chief Iron Wolf. The 73 year old officially changed his name from Wilfred Megin in 2011. At one point he was charged with violating New Milford's zoning regulations by having an illegal junk yard on his property.
