Wednesday was the deadline for write-in candidates to file their intentions with the elections board for the November election and submit signatures of support from at least 100 registered voters.
Durham County Commissioner Lewis Cheek's name also will be on the November ballot, but Cheek said he doesn't plan to campaign for the district attorney.
Cheek hasn't asked his supporters to endorse Monks. He said he plans to vote for himself in November, although he won't accept the job if he wins the election.
