Your information about MA not accepting write in candidates is incorrect. They do accept write in candidates, even if a candidate has not registered with them as a write-in, they just recommend that that they do, see the following:

http://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elestkr/stkridx.htm

Specifically they state:

"Also, while NOT required, our Office strongly recommends notifying your local election officials of your intention to run as a write-in or sticker candidate"

and also "All write-in or sticker votes should include the correct name and address of the candidates. Courts have ruled that a vote SHOULD BE COUNTED whenever the intent of the voter can reasonably be determined, even if a voter omits the candidate’s address or makes a mistake in the name or address."(emphasis mine)

If you are going to make definitive statements about which states do and do not accept write-ins, don't you think you should be real careful about checking your facts. When you publish false information it just makes people question everything you say.

Thanks LL :)
