Deadline looming for write-in treasurer candidates April 5, 2018 on News, Politics ELLSWORTH — Hancock County residents will not see any candidates for the office of county treasurer on the Nov. 6 ballot. Current Treasurer Janet Eldridge has said she would not seek another term. However, there is still a short window of time to be a write-in candidate on the ballot, according to Hancock County Commissioners Chairman Antonio Blasi. Blasi said the deadline is Friday, April 13, at 5 p.m. “They need to contact the secretary of state to qualify as a write-in,” Blasi said. Anyone over the age of 18 who is a Maine resident and registered to vote in the electoral district he or she would represent may be a candidate for county treasurer, according to the secretary of state.
