And per THIS effort, Ron Paul votes in CA will be counted!! -> http://www.dailypaul.com/260050/say-hello-to-my-little-friends

The Secretary of State will certify write in candidates on the 26th and after that we can check her web page for official confirmation.

Regarding the effort I worked on, we may also have 55 but it is going to be touch and go. I had to send mine off when we were well short and people were sending them in directly, so I don't have a full count.

So I am really glad this other effort was successful! I just couldn't have lived with myself if Ron wasn't certified and I hadn't done anything to try to get him certified.

I voted before I knew it would be counted, figuring my vote would at minimum be counted in the 'other', none of the above, category, which is the next most accurate vote, for me.

Here's a great article by someone who says why he is writing in Ron Paul that explains it better than I can:

This is great news!

Why I am writing in Ron Paul---"It’s fairly simple. He is the only person in this country that I would trust to be my president" (W. Clement Stone) wordpress article linked above---says it all for me.

thank you for your help!

and to everyone else who filed as elector under any of the efforts for this!

26TH October

Debra Bowen Sec of State sent me an email saying she will put up on her web page QUALIFIED WRITE-IN candidates 26 October. Until then, whatever information you have on the subject is hopeful thinking/wishing at best, and downright evil manipulation of stealing votes through fraud if Ron Paul is not listed. Very irresponsible and a lot like Romney tactics.

hey granger

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Two different people confirmed with the Secretary of State

here is one: http://www.dailypaul.com/260050/say-hello-to-my-little-frien...

and Gail Lightfoot confirmed on her facebook group as well. It is not 'certified' yet, but it is reported as 'verified'.

By all means wait until Oct 27 and go to the web page of the Secretary of State to look it up, but those who want to write in Ron Paul will at least want to hold onto their ballots until then and not send them in thinking he isn't a counted option.

God bless, a person of conviction.

! We must have the largest Write-In vote count in the history of our Republic! Can we win? Yes maybe we can! But even if we don’t we can surely make them stand up and take notice. Don’t throw your vote away voting for the evil of two lessers, or any other lesser, write in RON PAUL, in every state where it is allowed. I know all the arguments against a write in candidate, but if we can garner 30% to 50% of the vote in several key states this can not and will not be ignored. Why is this important? Because they must learn to fear us! We are not fringe, we are not kooks, we are the rEVOLution and we want our country back. You saw what happened at the RNC, they cheated, they lied and we were ignored, again. We don’t need to work with them and we sure don’t need their respect; they must learn to fear us! We will not go along to get along, we will fight and we will prevail. Write in Dr. Ron Paul, every single one of you! Is he not the leader of our revolution? Do we not admire and love him? Would he not make the BEST President for the past 200 years? Then why do you hesitate? Remember in November! Write-In Dr. Ron Paul!

Well, as much as you can guarantee any votes will be counted

In 2008 he was also a write in candidate, and I had to call and email a few times to make sure they posted them for my county but they did, a little later than the others.

That's certainly the exception.

And even then I'm willing to bet that most of them weren't.

Well, that goes for any vote though,

not just write in votes.

But less so.

why would it be less?

there is at least a paper trail with write ins

And you know they will be

And you know they will be counted how? Where is the verification that all votes are counted? Where is the open and transparent vote count done in public for all to see and verify? Nowhere!

Anyone who believes the vote count is fair and done correctly just because they say so in an unverifiable election is in denial

I'm not arguing that, just that he will be an official option

but concern about vote fraud goes to any vote, whether write in or not.

Yeah, well, I wrote in JESUS

Yeah, well, I wrote in JESUS today. Top that. Because who else is more qualified to be president than Jesus? Therefore, I proclaim that if you don't vote for Jesus, you are compromising your principle, after all, Jesus is lord and all-knowing.

ConstitutionHugger's picture

my reason for not writing in Paul.

I am a California voter, and I went back and forth about whether to write-in Ron Paul or vote Gary Johnson. I was a total Pollyanna supporter of RP right up through the convention. I thought some how, some way RP could win. But with all the cheating, he didn't.

I think Ron Paul made a great effort, but is no longer trying to win. He's not really a candidate anymore except to the many people who can't give up on Ron Paul. But it's about the movement, not the man. And I decided that the best way to help the movement is to vote for the liberty guy on the ballot who really wants to win. Ron Paul will advise him if he should miraculously win, so we will get Ron Paul too. My hope now is that Ron Paul endorses Johnson just at the right time for him to peak and make the maximum impact on the election.
So I guess I'm still a Pollyanna because I vote for Johnson with the audacious hope (sorry for the Obama reference) that a liberty guy can win enough votes to sneak up from behind and jab a pitchfork in the ass of the power monopoly.

In this case, sneaking up is

In this case, sneaking up is a showing of 5% nationwide. I almost want to say "just 5%" though it will be a climb to reach it.

The OP, who voted for someone who is no longer running, chose to not help break the two party duopoly. We each have our choices to make, and some choose to focus on ineffective voting booth graffiti.

if its just "graffiti" then why do certain states allow it???

Please get over yourself. Haven't we all be bantering about State's Rights for a long time now? If someone lives in a State that is recognizing write-ins WRITE IN RON PAUL Unless of course you truly believe the best use of your energy is in inside the Libertarian Party. (ppsssttt...Don't worry the Libertarian Party if it ever starts wielding enough influence, will get Co-opted and Corrupted just like every other party. sigh.)

nice.

I'm voting my conviction. Your candidate doesn't appeal to me, personally.

That is awesome.

Wish that was the case in every state... unfortunately, it is not.

Cool. I'm a CA voter and I

Cool. I'm a CA voter and I will be voting for Gary, but power to whoever is going to write in Ron Paul if that's what they truly want.

And look! CA votes for Ron Paul WILL be counted!! (see inside)

sailing . . .

this strategy, while it might make you "feel all warm and fuzzy", will help ensure romney wins and the Libertarian minds in the GOP are eliminated. you're in a war dude!!! within the GOP whether your discerning enough to know it or not.

You just took your Aye ARE 15 and shot it in the air in protest of killing folks who are charging you NOW with guns a blazin!!\

you're like the New England native tribes(naraganset(SP), etc.) in 1600's.

Nah, Ron Paul is a vote of conviction I can be proud of.

Johnson isn't my vote at all. And Ron's votes in CA will be counted! http://www.dailypaul.com/260050/say-hello-to-my-little-friends
