    Can we write in a candidate?

    I watched Clinton bad mouth Trump and the things he's done. Then saw Trump attack Clinton. Sanders was out when I heard about him wanting to pat reparations.  I don't want any of them. Can we get a new set of candidate to choose from?

    Depends what state you are in and each state has it's own rules. I sometimes write in NOTA (none of the above) as a protest vote. go here  for info for your state: https://ballotpedia.org/Ballot_access_f … candidates

    Yes you can write in a candidate and a president can be elected in this manner if enough Americans do so.

    You can, but it almost never amounts to anything. Strom Thurmond was the only person to win a Senate race as a write in candidate after he lost his party's nomination.
    You can go third party, but that's unlikely to matter either.

    Nobody will keep election promises
    Nobody will listen to your concerns
    Nobody will help the poor and unemployed without destroying the rest of us
    Nobody will lower your taxes
    Nobody will make life fair
    Nobody will keep you happy
    and frankly Nobody cares

    so write in Nobody!
