HOW TO PROPERLY SUBMIT WRITE-IN VOTES FOR CANDIDATES FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL PREFERENCE PRIMARY

 HOW TO PROPERLY SUBMIT WRITE-IN VOTES FOR CANDIDATES
 FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL PREFERENCE PRIMARY
 SEATTLE, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the Perot Petition Committee of Washington State:
 Hundreds of citizens throughout Washington have called the state headquarters of the Perot Petition Committee to inquire about how to properly submit write-in votes for Ross Perot in tomorrow's Presidential Preference Primary.
 The Washington State Secretary of State's Office has issued guidelines for this procedure in accordance with state statutory and regulatory provisions.
 The Perot Petition Committee asked each county to acknowledge their intent to comply with the secretary's guidelines. So far, 17 counties from throughout the state have agreed to this procedure for counting write-in votes. Those counties include Adams, Clallam, Clark, Garfield, Grant, King, Klickitat, Lincoln, Mason, Pend Oreille, Pierce, Snohomish, Spokane, Thurston, Wahkiakum, Whatcom and Yakima.
 Based on their responses, the simplest procedure to cast a vote for Ross Perot is to write his name only in the write-in section of either a Democratic or Republican ballot.
 "Our focus has been to bring out as many people as possible to the June 28 statewide mini-conventions and gain the signatures required to place Perot's name on the November presidential ballot. Tuesday's election has no impact whatsoever on the Perot petition process. To place Perot's name on the November ballot, voters must sign the petition on June 28 regardless of whether they have voted or not voted in the Presidential Preference Primary," said Ed Doyne, Perot Petition Committee state chairman.
 The Perot Petition Committee believes that due to the understandable confusion about the write-in process, the results of this election will not reflect the total support for Ross Perot.
