Mickey for Soil and Water Supervisor
Mickey Mouse, Gov. Pat McCrory, and Mr. T were among those to get write-in votes for Wake County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor.Posted — Updated
McCrory garnered one of the more than 3,000 uncategorized write-in votes for the office cast by Wake County voters on Nov. 4.
However, many people wrote in their choice of candidates for the office, which is frequently a sign that voters don't know the candidates for the relatively low-profile office.
Should McCrory decide to run in the future, it won't necessarily be a cake walk. He was bested in the write-in vote by Mickey Mouse (11 votes), Donald Duck (7 votes) and No Vote (2 votes). Perhaps understandably, given the office's reliance on science, well-known science educators Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson garnered votes.
