In Milton’s Nov. 3 municipal elections, the write-in votes for city council District 3 favored Al Trevillyan, who campaigned heavily for incumbent Bill Lusk’s unopposed seat.
Lusk won the race with 2,216 votes, and, according to Fulton County Board of Elections Director Barry Garner, Trevillyan received 920 write-in votes.
Trevillyan could not be reached for comment.
According to the write-in race summary report, other notable write-in votes in District 3 went to Goofy and Ted Nugent, while two Milton citizens voting in the mayor’s race threw their support behind Atlanta candidates Mary Norwood and “Kaseem” Reed.
A “Dirt Road Repairman” was also given a vote for mayor, and 2008 Presidential candidate Bob Barr gained a vote in Milton’s District 1 race.
Several write-in voters gave unopposed incumbents in Roswell, Alpharetta and Milton a beating by casting a ballot for “Anyone Else.”
In Alpharetta, Debbie Gibson received eight votes and R.J. Kurey received two votes for Doug DeRito’s unopposed Post 1.
Other write-in votes in Alpharetta went to Glenn Beck, George Bush and cartoon dads Peter Griffin and Homer Simpson.
White gloves and big ears were a big hit for write-in voters in all three cities, where Mickey Mouse received a total of nine votes for various seats.
Always a side-kick, Donald Duck received one vote in each city, while an indistinct D. Duck gained two votes in Roswell.
