Republicans failed to get a candidate to file for Attorney General to run against failed Senate candidate MArtha Coakley, who is now very unpopular. As a result, James McKenna is running a write-in campaign as a Republican. If he gets 10k write in votes, he will be the nominee. No office so important should go uncontested. MA has strange write-in laws, so it is important to make sure you get it right for your vote to count. To properly write-in James McKenna:
Make sure you fill in the oval by the BLANK Attorney General spot on the ballot.
In the blank space write: "James McKenna 28 Miles St. Millbury" If you do not write the full thing, your vote will NOT count. Just writing James McKenna is not sufficient.
The McKenna campaign lays out the procedure in this video:
