Default Priming question

I have a batch of mead that is in secondary and is awesome. I brewed it last march with 12# of honey, pitched yeast and nutrient/energizer like I had read on here. Its very clear and I want to bottle it and prime it. Should I pitch more yeast in the bottling bucket with the priming sugar, or should it have enough yeast in solution (like beer) to do the job. Thanks!

If it has been in secondary for almost a year your yeast may be dead so you may need to repitch.

Repitching won't hurt and may help.
