This is a 2005 documentary film produced by director Kristian Fraga on the mayoral race in Bogota, New Jersey.
The mayoral race was between Republican Steve Lonegan, Democrat Fred Pesce and independent Dave Musikant who is a legally blind write-in candidate.
The film is described as a candid documentary on a small town that serves as a perfect backdrop which provides a compromising look at the political climate of the States.
I didn't know what "A write-in candidate" was.
It is a candidate in an election whose name does not appear on the ballot, but for whom voters may vote nonetheless by writing in the person's name.
It has something to do with the States and doesn't represent a worldwide view of the subject.
Some states and local jurisdictions allow a voter to affix a sticker with a write-in candidate's name on it to the ballot in lieu of actually writing in the candidate's name.
Write-in candidacies are sometimes a result of a candidate being legally or procedurally ineligible to run under his or her own name or party.
In some cases, write-in campaigns have been organized to support a candidate who is not personally involved in running; this may be a form of draft campaign.
It's quite interesting!
