SHELBY – At the February meeting of the Shelby Area Democratic Club, members and other Democrats in the 7th Congressional District were urged to write in Quentin Potter when they cast their ballots in the upcoming March 17th primary election.
“Quentin Potter is seeking the Democratic nomination to run for Congress,” explained club president Garland Gates. “Because his name won’t appear on the ballot, voters will need to write in his name.”
A resident of Stark County, Quentin Potter has 30 years of public service experience, mostly in state government. In 2014, he retired as treasurer of the Lorain County Community College.
“Mr. Potter is well qualified to represent us in Congress,” Mr. Gates added.
The sprawling, gerrymandered 7th CD includes northern Richland County and southern Huron County. The communities of Shelby, Plymouth, Shiloh, Willard, Greenwich, and New London are within its boundaries.
To cast a write-in vote for Quentin Potter, voters will need first of all to request a Democratic ballot. They will see “write-in” under the office “Representative to Congress – 7th District.” Select “write-in” and a keypad will appear. Type in Quentin Potter. Return to the ballot and make sure it now has Quentin Potter with the box checked.
“Pollworkers will gladly assist voters if they need assistance,” noted Mr. Gates.
The next meeting of the Shelby Area Democratic Club is scheduled for Thursday, March 19. It will take place at 7:00 pm in the Sutter-Roush Room, 23 East Main Street. Area Democrats and persons of goodwill are always welcome to attend.
