CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

With record low approval numbers for presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, some voters are considering casting their ballot for a third party or write-in candidate.

Ohio Governor John Kasich did just that last week when he wrote-in John McCain instead of the Republican nominee. However, casting a vote for McCain (or Mike Pence, as some anti-Trump Republicans have suggested, or Bernie Sanders, as some anti-Clinton Democrats have suggested) will actually invalidate your vote.

In Ohio, only votes for certified write-in candidates will count. Here is a list of certified write-in candidates and their running mates in Ohio: 

  • James Jerome Bell & Scheem Milton Hempstead  
  • Michael Bickelmeyer & Robert Young  
  • Darrell L. Castle & Scott N. Bradley 
  • Cherunda Fox & Roger Kushner  
  • Ben Hartnell & Dave Marshall 
  • Tom Hoefling & Steve Schulin  
  • Bruce E. Jaynes & Roger W. Stewart  
  • Chris Keniston & Deacon Taylor  
  • Barry Kirschner & Rick Menefield  
  • Laurence Kotlikoff & Edward Leamer  
  • Joseph Maldonado & Douglas Terranova  
  • Michael Andrew Maturen & Juan Antonio Munoz  
  • Evan McMullin & Nathan Johnson  
  • Monica Moorehead & Lamont Lilly  
  • Joe Schriner & Joe Moreaux  
  • Mike Smith & Daniel White  
  • Josiah R. Stroh & Paul Callahan  
  • Douglas W. Thomson & Thomas A. Ducro, Jr. 

A write-in candidate's name must be spelled correctly or else the ballot might be invalidated.
