OK I lean liberal on a lot. Not Obama liberal though. Think he is pretty much fail. I really like Joe Scarborough. He is GOP 100%, does not seem to want to be president. He seem to care about people and not all Corporation. So how could we make him President even if he don't want it? Joe seems to be a pretty regular guy and that is what we really need and he also seem to have a lot of common sense.

I have never seen a place on my ballots to write in a Presidential candidate. What to do to get him elected? We need someone who is not really wanting it that badly.

How?

I believe for a write in campaign the person being written in has to file a letter of intent with their state for their votes to count. So even if you run a successful campaign, garnering a majority of votes, if that isn't done the votes don't count.

I still write in Alfred E. Neuman.

Edit to add:

Yeah, I found this information helpful.


Voting for a write-in candidate in a presidential election isn't as easy as it sounds. Write-in candidates must file legally mandated paperwork declaring their candidacy in every state in which they intend to run for office. If you write in the name of a candidate who has not filed this paperwork with the appropriate election authority in your state, your vote will not be counted. To successfully write in a presidential candidate, you must first find out which write-in candidates are running, then research your state's specific procedures for write-in voting.

There is always a write in spot, usually at the bottom bellow all the other names.

If the ballot does not have a space for that then there is an issue.

How?

Presidents have a need to kill people from time to time, tell porkies from time to time, and above all know what's going on, as in the former/latter?.

I wrote in a vote for James Harris from the Socialist Workers Party in 2000

My friends thought I was crazy voting for a black guy who was basically a Marxist, but f it. That's how I rolled when I was young
