A local farmer is throwing his name into the upcoming elections.
Michael McCulloch, a retired vet and farmer, announced his candidacy for the District 81 State Representative seat.
Brooks Landgraf was the only name on the ballot for that race until now.
The write in candidate will have to be verified by the Secretary of State.
McCulloch says he's doing it to give citizens options and make sure West Texas is not over looked in Austin.
