Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):

    Using actual numbers of write-in candidates for years 2008, 2010 and 2012 and applied the 25% of the filing fee, the estimated revenue was computed. The results are below
    2008 $12,650
    2010 $ 1,405
    2012 $19,955


    If the write-in filing fee would have been in place in the previous year of 2008, 2010 and 2012, the number of write-in candidates may have been lower than the number used in the estimate.
