That shiat doesn't fly in Oklahoma. We report a grand total of the top two vote-getters and the rest can hang. Like God intended.

I just scrawled a crudely-drawn penis on my ballot.

Easy Entry in Politics:

1. Legally change your name to "None of the Above".
2. Enter candidacy, and work to ensure you are listed last on the ballot.
3. Welcome to your new job!

I voted for Master Chief.
 
2012-11-11 03:29:36 PM  
"Burning Bag of Dog shiat" was also one of the write-ins. Oddly, Beer wasn't.

List fails without Wee......well, this is fark, you know who.

Surely I am not the only one who wrote their own name in for something.

/I'm assuming I am not the new Waste Management Coordinator for my county since my wife voted for the other guy

To be fair, Publix sandwiches are awesome
 
2012-11-11 03:37:45 PM  
To be fair, Publix makes fantastic wraps and sandwiches, however I am unsure about sandwich foreign policy, and thus wrote Queen Elizabeth II as usual.

So "secret ballot" is just a figure of speech now I guess.

From the article: And, perhaps most interestingly, "Bacon" got a handful of write-in votes in Athens, possibly from voters concerned, one way or another, about pork-barrel spending.

Well, truly, what CAN'T bacon do?

My write-in vote was for BOB JOHNSON!

You should talk to Richard Pryor about that.

I don't think "secret ballot" ever referred to the people for whom the votes were cast. Otherwise, the results of every election would be "none of your goddamned business."

I wrote in a deceased friend against an unopposed judge, just cause he used to like getting write-in votes for any old office. I didn't think of being creative.

I voted for the ticket of Chargrilled Hamburger Sandwich and French-Fried Potatoes.
 
2012-11-11 04:13:35 PM  
I vote for Sasha Grey whenever there is an incumbent without competition for a position. Sadly she never wins.

4 years ago I asked the guy running the polls at my district in Oklahoma City if I could do a write in.

He responded with what? A write in candidate. He said, "i've never heard of that, where do they do that, Cuba"?

I didn't say anything. What can you say to that level of stupidity?

You know as well as I do that you can't hold a chargrilled hamburger sandwich and French-fried potatoes garnish with nuclear arms.
 
2012-11-11 04:19:20 PM  
This year? Same as every other year since I turned 18. A write-in vote for "Michael Stipe's Penis".

I wrote in the same name I did in '96: Jello Biafra
 
2012-11-11 04:25:30 PM  
I'd vote for a Publix sub over quite a few candidates in the recent election. Specifically, the turkey cranberry sub. Jesus Mary and Joseph, that sub is good.

kxs401: I just scrawled a crudely-drawn penis on my ballot.


That was counted as a vote for Romney.
 
2012-11-11 04:40:07 PM  
To be fair, Publix subs at the deli counter do rock. And so do the Publix rotisserie chickens.
 
2012-11-11 04:47:54 PM  
I could see "Pedobear" winning an election fairly easily.
 
2012-11-11 05:03:26 PM  
I vote Not Sure for president.

Why waste your vote? Hector Elizondo Mountain Dew Camacho is the man to beat.

/he's got electrolytes
 
2012-11-11 05:15:09 PM  
To be fair, I voted Turd Sandwich rather than Publix sandwich. Wouldn't you know it, Douchenozzle won.
 
2012-11-11 05:21:32 PM  
Oh Athens, you're so farking quirky.
 
2012-11-11 05:22:27 PM  
In the Bill Cowsert race I voted for Cow Billsert.

/really

FTFA: :"The only legitimate write-in candidate in the race - Georgia law requires write-in candidates to publish notice of their intent to run as a write-in in a general-circulation newspaper"

I did not know that in some places you have to register as a write-in in order for votes for you to be counted. (Other places count any write-ins while yet others don't allow write-ins).

Bill Nees, who appears derptastic, is a certified writein for President in 43 states and explains the rules here to have your write-ins counted, state by state.

I wonder if anybody notable, such as Sarah Palin, has made the effort to be a certified write-in and where once could find a list of all such people.

This is the first election, ever, that I haven't voted for "Alfed E. Newman". poop in one hand, poop in the other, we aren't really given any real choice. one poop really scared me this year though.

/tired of the one party system that we have.
 
2012-11-11 05:35:46 PM  
I am pleased and somewhat impressed to see Charles Darwin won over 4,000 votes. Good show!

Of course, his real wins come when the damn-fool politicians who get elected get down to work, thus generating a steady stream of Darwin Awards.

you really think she'd actually look attractive wearing fancy political clothes and lipstick?

not like connie mack, my fav lipstick wearer

There was one spot on our local stuff I didn't actually vote for since it was the same guy in three spaces with no challenger. I'm still kicking myself for forgetting to write in Cthulu for that one.
 
2012-11-11 05:50:10 PM  
What, no Aleister Crowley? I am diappoint :(
 
2012-11-11 06:05:49 PM  
I received 2 votes for Georgia's 53rd District State Senator.

Sadly my write in campaign could not overcome the GOP establishment's good ol' boy.
 
2012-11-11 06:10:55 PM  
I wrote in Hulk Hogan / Ric Flair
 
2012-11-11 06:12:32 PM  
Some of those are even better choices . Real change for sure .
 
2012-11-11 06:30:20 PM  

machoprogrammer: I wrote in Hulk Hogan / Ric Flair


My first presidential election was 2000, and I didn't care much for Bush or Gore. So I wrote in Jesse Ventura.
In my defense, he was a fairly popular 3rd party governor then, and had yet to descent into his batshiat insane conspiracy theorist phase.
