A write‑in candidate is not required to file a non-subversive [[nonsubversive]]affidavit except where the write‑in has occurred at a primary election and his name must appear upon a general election ballot.  One elected at a general election by write‑in is required to sign a written statement containing answers to such inquiries as the political subdivision determines are necessary to ascertain whether he is a subversive person.
