What state? Was it a write-in or was he on the ballot?

Obviously if he's on the ballot (as he was here in GA, which got my vote because I was unsure my write-in for Dr. Paul would be counted), then obviously it will count. Sailingaway also has a thread of states that count write-ins that I'll link to when I find:

Here's the thread with write-in states confirmed: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?394457-Ron-Paul-is-an-Official-Write-In-Candidate-in-CA-amp-ME-amp-Other-States-%28LIST%29

I voted for Gary Johnson in New Jersey district 2. I must admit that I was undecided literally right up until I pushed the button whether to write in Ron Paul or vote for Johnson. Either way I know my conscience will be fine.

I was going to vote for Gary but then I thought I would punish the GOP with a vote for Obama. In the end, I'm going to write-in Ron Paul in CA, since he is a certified official write-in candidate and the vote will be counted and reported. And I must say it feels good!

Voting either RP or GJ is nice, but I am afraid that media might not report it because since votes are split... the percentage would be lower. Just like how the GOP primaries didn't bother to say Ron Paul's name during the delegate count. I imagine it'd be the same for the third party/write ins.

I hope a news media site will have the balls to post it.

I still can't believe the local LP trusted America's Elect to get him on our ballot. Had to leave that slot blank.

Voted for him in Mass. Was surprised to see two other guys I know on Facebook say they voted for him too. One of those I didn't even know was a libertarian. I hadn't talked to him in a while.

Me me me.

Was tempted to vote for Obama, just to give the Mitt people that vote they kept telling me I was going to give him, but the Obama people are even bigger douchebags, so Johnson was the vote.

Hubby too.

Four more in Florida (myself, wife, brother and cousin).

I even convinced a Democrat co-worker who voted last election for Obama to vote independent for the first time in his life. He voted for Gary Johnson making it five.

Really though, he (and Jim Gray by association) was the only person I voted for on my ballot. Everyone running for other positions were just Ds and Rs and/or unopposed. I did vote on a couple state amendments though (nullify Obamacare)

2 votes for Gary from our house in Texas. There were quite a few Libertarians on the ballot that I voted for. Republicans don't need or want my vote and my vote doesn't matter anyways here in Texas.

I gladly voted Johnson on my AZ ballot so I could make sure my displeasure with the GOP would be registered. After Romney loses, the GOP will have to reconsider how they drove our votes away. Let the rebuilding of the GOP resume. We have gained much ground since 2007 and many liberty candidates are doing well tonight.

Ron Paul R3VOLUTION!

Looks like he got an even 1% of the vote. Middle of the election I didn't think he's break the 1% mark. I mean with the amount of Red vs Blue ads on television it is a miracle that any of us remembered that third parties existed.

It's like a breath of fresh air, seeing so many of us standing on principle and making such a difficult decision. I've said it once, and I'll say it again: It's wonderful to have so much evidence that I'm not alone. (That WE'RE not alone.)

To contribute, I'd like to ask a question. How many of us who supported Johnson are feeling more than a little alienated by friends, family, and coworkers on the basis of our vote? My mother and father are apoplectic, and they are pissed at me in a very real and very sad way. I'm a grown man, therefore I'm not concerned with doing what they think is right just for the sake of doing what they think is right. We are becoming more distant as they have seen my prediction come true - that the GOP fucked itself right off the cliff into a pool of fail by ignoring, then lying about, and finally marginalizing us. By election night's eve, I had convinced myself that I was wrong, that Robamney would win on the basis of Republican vitriol. I paid too much attention to the polls; I fell victim to the hype.

I never told them that. All they knew was what I had told them back in August: the moment Boehner read off that teleprompter, the GOP sealed its doom...

It's almost as though we are bearing a burden...such is the task of carrying the torch of liberty, I suppose. The pioneers catch the arrows, as they say here in my neck of the woods.

The wife and I both voted Johnson. (California.)

Writing in Ron Paul would've felt great, and I wanted to, but I felt voting Johnson was potentially the most constructive thing I could do for the Liberty movement.

Because if the LP had gotten 5% of the popular vote, then it would be designated (by law) a "minor party" in 2016 with matching Federal funds like the two war parties. And automatic ballot access in all 50 states. I really wanted to see that happen.

Ever since election day I have been educating friends and family on why *they* are the ones who wasted their votes, not me. (Of course I've been trying to wake people up for months now but they all seem to be fucking hibernating harder than dead ice cubes.)
