“The below Nebraska Revised Statute outlines the requirements and deadlines to be a write in candidate in Nebraska. For the office of President, there are no filling fee requirements.

Neb. Rev. Stat. 32-615

Any candidate engaged in or pursuing a write-in campaign shall file a notarized affidavit of his or her intent together with the receipt for any filing fee with the filing officer as provided in section 32-608 no later than ten days prior to the election. A candidate who has been defeated as a candidate in the primary election or defeated as a write-in candidate in the primary election shall not be eligible as a write-in candidate for the same office in the general election unless a vacancy on the ballot exists pursuant to section 32-625. A candidate who files a notarized affidavit shall be entitled to all write-in votes for the candidate even if only the last name of the candidate has been written if such last name is reasonably close to the proper spelling.

The below attached document is the write in affidavit form. You can use this form as a model and change the Nebraska specific terms to whatever state you have your form notarized in. Let me know if you have any questions!”
