Good News: No Donald Duck for Concord Mayor

CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - The election results are in and the votes are being finalized by election officials.

But, amongst the reams of results, there are a few names of note on the write-in candidate section.

Among some of the notables, Mickey Mouse, Elvis Presley, Daffy Duck and Anybody Else.

Cabarrus County Board of Elections Director Linda Grist says the fictitious names come up every year with Disney characters being some of the more popular.

Concord Mayor Scott Padgett says he was a little worried about an excess of write-in votes for Mayor Mickey Mouse. Padgett's bid for re-election is secure but he says about the mouse votes, "I just didn't see it coming."
