I know we won't be able to collect all of them but it would be interesting to see how many votes Ron Paul got and where. I'm going to find out if I can go to our local election office and count write ins.. just to satisfy my own curiosity

NC had 12,043 Write-Ins (no way to tell how many of those were for Ron Paul, Virgil Goode, or Mickey Mouse) and 44,794 for Johnson.

WOAH. Just checked PA. Some very interesting stats. I call bullshit. State wide they are claiming only 90 write-in votes for President. 90. Not 900.

Libertarians in PA did pretty well. Johnson got 1.2, Smith (Senator) got 2.3, Rogers (Attorney General) got 3.2, Summers (Auditor General) got 6.0 (you go girl), and Fryman (Treasurer) got 4.6.

My township claims only 7 write-ins. I hope people are filling out affidavits. 90 votes should be easy to debunk. I know of 25 myself.

But I am assuming that since Goode was a recognized write-in candidate, his numbers will be published eventually?

ok.. I just ran through all the counties in Florida - their county supervisor of elections pages and got what results I could.
Some didn't have voter totals.. or write in totals so I had to do the math .. notes included

adding up what I did find the total write ins for the whole state on unofficial results pages is 17022 - I'm not buying it.

anyway.. by county...

don't hold your breathe.
voting for a ballot qualified candidate is the only way you had a chance at making sure the gop saw you flipping them off.
i mentioned this before.

Exactly. Thank you!

Let's all write in Ron Paul in 2016 too. We'll show them! ;)

You did. And, believe it or not, one of your posts did influence me in my decision to vote for GJ.:)

well, if i'm flipping someone off, i want them to see it.
I've been doing presidential politics long enough to know, write-ins are never posted unless it is an establishment drone getting the write-ins.

I also put ron on the ballot in louisiana in 2008. i know what it feels like to want to vote for the man for president. i understand.
but in that process, i did fuck over some friends.. and realized i was actually doing harm by being selfish in that case.

Yep! +rep. Thankfully for me Goode was a ballot qualified candidate in Tennessee. ;) I actually like Andre Barnett best of all the third party candidates, but he wasn't on the ballot here. But hey, maybe folks wanted to flip off the GOP without them really knowing it so they can't hold it against Rand? Who knows?

well, if you don't want them to see it, staying home or not voting for pres. would have accomplished the same things as a write-in.
the write-ins probably won't even make historical data on the race. look back at 2008, see if you find write-in totals.

Only certified write-ins are named, but let's not move the goal posts here. We have write-in totals. We will have write-in totals for evermore now that Clarity is reporting them. Even if we go to a different company, there is a real reluctance to lose functionality in NC Gov reporting, so once we have a function, we will always have that function. Mickey Mouse is just as much a protest as Ron Paul for the duopoly.

I will say that Barr/Root got 25,722 in 2008, compared to Johnson 43,956 in 2012.

for the GOP to see your middle finger in their face it would have to be on something like an LP ticket or CP ticket (because for some reason they are seen as republican protest votes that belong to the GOP).

10,000 people voting for Jesus would not been seen as a GOP protest vote. it would be the formation of a new cult.
i'm not stretching the goal post. i just didn't clarify what is important about the numbers. the only important numbers when it comes to flipping off the gop or those that are seen by them as votes that belong to them.
in order for a write-in vote to be seen by GOP party bosses as beloning to the GOP family, it would have to be a republican write-in... like Ron Paul.
that is why it matter if history records a Ron Paul write-in vote as just a 'write-in vote' lump in with mickey mouse... or if it records the write-in totals by names.

i don't see why they don't report to the SOS the write-ins by name. i would.

If only I was registered in Kansas instead of North Carolina, I could have voted for Chuck Baldwin. :)
