John A. Sherwin

Posted by on September 20 at 13:13 PM

I just took a call from a perplexed voter, who wanted to follow our advice to write in Peter Sherwin for the monorail board. But our cheat sheet lists “John A. Sherwin.”

Here’s the deal: For a write-in to be counted, you have to fill in the person’s name, as it’s officially listed on their own voter registration. (We learned that back when we encouraged folks to write in Nick Licata—er, Nicholas J. Licata—for mayor.)

We called Peter, made him dig out his registration card (while refusing to tell him why), and asked him what his official name is. It’s John A. Sherwin.
