It says "JOHNSON, GRAY" on my ballot. I am somewhat amused and thought I'd share. :toady:

Did they misspelled "Mitt" as "Ryan" as well?

Write in Virgil Goode! He has official write-in status in AZ.

Why not just vote for Johnson and right in Goode and Paul at the same time. Its not like your vote matters anyway so fuck um if they through it out. Then you can have the best of all worlds.

OMG, I just noticed that they put both halves of the ticket on there. I just looked for the LBT section. I didn't know Gary's VP, so didn't know what to look for. Egg on my face big time. /facepalm @ self

Yeah, I'll be writing in someone or other for every position. Mostly made-up names and cartoon characters, though.

It's not difficult for me to imagine that the mistake was made by the Johnson campaign and your state just spelled it the way it was on their papers.

Nope. It's "Romney Ryan (REP)" on my ballot. (though Ryan is below Romney)

Oh wait. So then it is both last names on the ticket and Johnson Gray is right.

Why not take half an hour and look up and see if anyone worth voting for is running?

I'd suggest voting for Flake for senate. He's not a pure liberty candidate, but he's still better than pretty much anyone not named Rand or Mike Lee and he's in a tough race.

Because I don't take voting seriously.

Even if you don't take voting seriously, Flake is a good candidate.

Flake's going to win no matter what I do. The partisan registration and voting patterns in this state make it virtually impossible for any other outcome. (He's also been in office for some 20 years or so, and that sort of thing is unlikely to suddenly stop) I'll probably vote for Batman.

The latest poll had Carmona up by 2% (within the margin or error and the poll was by PPP). It's a very close race. You should vote for Flake.

He's actually losing in the polls.

Vote for him!

Oh and take a picture of your ballot once you write in Batman in a different race, I'll give you rep :p (2 rep if you vote for flake as well)

I could see myself considering voting for him. But I wouldn't go so far as to call him a good candidate.

Compared to the rest of the senate, he's an amazing candidate.

He's better than them like fibromyalgia is better than cancer. But that doesn't make him good, much less amazing.

Marc Victor wasn't very convincing in the debate, but he's got the right positions. He's a viable alternative to Flake.

If by viable you mean he'll get less than 1% of the vote, then sure.
