Note: Absentee ballots are available in every state. In some cases it's easier to cast a write-in vote on a paper absentee ballot than using a voting machine. Call your county court house to request an absentee ballot.
Connecticut - Voter registration deadline is October 24. All voting machines will have pencils available. Move the slide at the top of the machine to the left, then push it up and write in Hagelin or John Hagelin. Pull the slide back down. It is always OK to ask for assistance in a polling place. Alternative: Call your county court house and ask for an absentee ballot.
D.C. - Scroll down the list of Presidential Candidates. At the bottom of the list there will be a place to write in John Hagelin for President. Use a pencil to write in John Hagelin, and then punch the write-in indicator.
Indiana - Printed instruction for writing in a candidate's name while using a voting machine will be posted in the booth. If you have any questions, or are unsure of how to follow the instructions, ask a Polling Official for assistance.
For polling places using paper ballots, simply mark the write-in box as indicated (fill in the oval or whatever) and write in John Hagelin.
Maine - John Hagelin and Nat Goldhaber have been certified as write-in candidates. State law requires that the candidates municipality of residence be listed (i.e., Hagelin Fairfield, IA and Goldhaber Berkeley, CA). However, since the warden in each municipality will make the decision on the validity of a vote and will be sure of the intent of the voter, that vote will be counted. The most important thing is to activate the write-in indicator on the ballot -- whether that is moving an arrow on a machine or filling in an oval (or whatever) on a paper ballot and then writing in Hagelin. Maryland - On Maryland's newest voting machines, the voter touches the space for write-ins and uses a keyboard to enter the name John Hagelin. The older voting machines have a metal slide. Slide this up and write in John Hagelin. In polling places that do not have machines, a card will be provided and the name John Hagelin is written in the space at the end of President of the US candidate's list. It's always OK to ask for help in the Polling Place.

The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is November 2 by mail or November 4 in person.
