Thread: Best list we've been able to make of states where Ron Paul write ins will b counted

  1. #1

    Default Best list we've been able to make of states where Ron Paul write ins will b counted

    PLEASE CHIME IN WITH any corrections -- this is a compilation from a bunch of people (I've only personally looked up 6 of them, CA, ME, IA, NH, PA and WA which have the qualifications below). Note that there is much longer list floating around but I know a couple of the states required filings by Ron, so I am not using that list. Also, this does not mean to lessen the power of voting your conviction for Ron Paul even if it falls into the counted 'other' category as a protest, and there is at least one affidavit effort to support those write ins. So, list:

    Alabama – (no registration required for write in votes);
    California – (Ron Paul/Napolitano now listed on CA SOS site with 55 Electors as registered as a write in candidate) In CA you can write President for position and Ron Paul ;
    District of Columbia;
    Delaware;
    Iowa – (no registration required for write in votes);
    Maine – (Ron Paul is registered with Electors on the SOS site as a write in candidate) In Maine write Ron E. Paul;
    Maryland;
    New Hampshire – (no registration required for write in votes);
    New Jersey – (no registration required for write in votes -- checking tho - seems may only be counted if 'impacts result');
    New York (ONLY if you or someone in your county is willing to count them, in at least Erie a guy is doing it)
    Oregon (may vary by county if tallied separately if you don't do it yourself);
    Pennsylvania – (no registration required, but rules permit each County to decide if to count write in candidates, Mellissa is doing it in hers);
    Rhode Island;
    Vermont – (no registration required for write in votes);
    Washington (Only counted individually if there are enough write ins to impact result must write both PARTY and FULL name: Ronald Earnest Paul;
    Wisconsin;
    Wyoming – (no registration required for write in votes)

    also of interest, people are collecting affidavits to back up write in votes in OTHER states that don't count (we could do that here if we want, if people like the idea but don't want to send their info to a group they don't know): http://writeinron2012.com/writeinBlog/faq/

    I made a couple of edits everyone should double check, but I was asked by a number of people to post the best list we had.

    Has anyone found out anything definitive about writing in RP in Florida? I searched and read a thread from earlier but there was no concrete answer. Thanks.

    My understanding is they don't have to count him in Florida since he didn't file, but a bunch of counties did, in 2008. It will depend on your county. Otherwise it falls into the general 'other' category for none of the above.

    Wish I would be able to write in Dr. Paul. I missed the deadline for an absentee ballot and I'll be in surgery tomorrow. Someone in PA better go vote twice for me.

    Hay MD here. I saw something before about the Gilbert case allowing MD write in votes to count. Forwarded that to the local CFL and haven't heard a peep from them about it. Now you list it. Based o the Gilbert post? Will write in votes for Dr. Paul be counted in MD?

    thanks,

    Wouldn't it be awesome if Dr. Paul pulled 30% in those states? That would throw a monkey wrench in their turd sandwich conveyor belt.

    unfortunately I think VA is one where you just have to know it will be counted as none of the above if you leave it blank or write something they don't count. There aren't actually that many states like that but I think VA is one. YOu may be able to write him in, but they won't count it as 'Ron Paul's' vote, I don't think. However, everywhere they count the 'other'.

    there is a link in the op to a group doing affidavits to back up votes in states where they don't count, or we could do it here, but it won't be reported by election officials as 'Ron Paul's'. I still know people there who plan to write him in, though.

    yeah, VA requires the candidate file the paperwork showing their intent to be considered a write-in candidate. i guess the Paul campaign didn't file the paperwork

    You can write it and try for a large 'other' category. Sorry, though!

    Ok, not to sound ignorant but doesn't CA have all electronic polling booths? I'm excited by this though, much rather write in Ron than vote for Gary Johnson.

    Write ins are on the sleeve in my county, you have to be careful NOT to mark anything in the corresponding slot for a different candidate, but you write it on the sleeve you wrap around the ballot. I'm trying to remember if there was something you clicked to show a write in was attached or not. It says what to do on the booklet though, and you can ask the poll worker who will have a list of candidates with Ron's name as President and Andrew Napolitano as VP which can be written in. You only need to write position President and Ron Paul, and it will pick up both but you can write both if you want.

    here is the list of certified write in candidates for CA (including Ron) http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/2012...candidates.pdf

    I think it will be counted as 'other' unless you can get your county to count it. So a large 'other' in the presidential vote would be intriguing and if large enough maybe we can agitate to get them counted. Otherwise we'd likely say what Ron's votes are where we know and what 'other' is where they don't count his individually.

    there is a link in the op of people who are doing affidavits to back up votes, if you are interested in that. I just don't think many will know about the site so it will be way undercounted.
