Write-in Ron Paul 2012

Hello all Ron Paul supporters!! I feel the need to start a campaign to get supporters of Dr. Ron Paul to organize an effort to write Dr. Paul's name in come November. This is a short description but this will be a strong message if we can put together a real effort to get as many write-ins as we can!! We can't stop now! WE MUST PERSERVERE AND SHOW EVERYONE WHAT DEDICATION TO OUR MESSAGE OF LIBERTY REALLY LOOKS LIKE!!!!

Too late in Texas. Deadline was 6-29-2012

Ron Paul won't file with state either. A write in here is a throw away vote. Might as well vote for a third party.

State by state rules regarding 3rd Party and write-in campaigns

If you are going to write-in someone in November you should at least know the rules. This post explains the rules on a state by state basis:


This is an example of an application to be a write-in candidate. You will notice on this application that Ron Paul himself will have to sign this application or write-in votes in Connecticut will not be counted or reported. How many states have the same rules to have write-in votes counted and reported?:


Educate yourselves before you vote!

I know we can get this done if we try!!


Come on! Let's get Ron Paul eligible as a write in candidate in every state we can!!

Join the group "Write-in Ron Paul 2012" now!!

I fully agree - Write him in.

Send a message to the GOP and RNC that they screwed up and nominated the WRONG CANDIDATE.

The only way to get that message to them is to write-in Ron Paul.

Plus - we'll never have another chance to do it again.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Qualified write-in candidate

I don't want to be a Debbie Downer here, but it is my understanding from previous posts that unless Dr. Paul is listed as a qualified write-in candidate in your State, the write-in vote will probably not be recorded at all. Thus, any strong message that in reality might be made, will never see the light of day. Grassroots organizations within each State need to take the necessary steps to see to it that Dr. Paul is listed as a qualified write-in candidate.

Presidential electors

Presidential electors choose the President. There generaly are no presidential electors 'pledged' to a write-in candidate. Presidential Electors are selected by parties.

Independent citizen

Are you saying that an American citizen cannot run for President without the backing of a party? Can you cite something that shows that Presidential Electors can only be chosen by parties?

I'm not saying you are wrong, but if what you are saying is correct, that seems pretty whacked (sorry, couldn't think of a better term), especially since a number of the Founders warned against the existence of political parties from the start.

Let's do that then!! Let's

Let's do that then!! Let's get our organizations working on this!!!

No need. By the time Lawyers for Ron Paul are through with...

the RNC and the State GOP's, they will be so broke they will gladly give Ron Paul the nomination.

Don't get me wrong... I still

Don't get me wrong... I still have just as much hope for a win in Tampa than the most diehard, but what kind of powerful message could we send if we could organize a REAL effort and show them the numbers they are really up against!!!!! Before Tampa, so our numbers can be known to ALL!!!

Now that's the way to think...
