Write in Ron ?

http://writein2008.blogspot.com/2008/04/wyoming.html

I looked this over and there are six states we can write him in and two
with provisions for a write in.
I counted 19 he could file and still make the deadline for filing, I don't remember if I included Montana ;p
If my math hasn't failed me are 27 states enough?

What states ?

What states are write in candidates allowed?

Leading Ron Paul Suipporters Is Like Herding Cats

Even Ron Paul himself can't seem to get through to you guys!!!

Ron has asked us to vote for surrogate third party candidates to express our dissatisfaction with the status quo.

Now those of you in the few states where you can vote for Ron Paul can certainly do so, but most of us don't have that option.

For instance here in Texas you can't write in Ron Paul, but Chuck Baldwin is listed on the Texas Secretary of State's website as an approved write-in candidate.

So you aren't stuck with Ralph Nader as someone on another topic claimed. You actually have a good liberty option even in Texas. In fact you have the option that Ron Paul himself will probably choose.

Texas missed the write in deadline

"For instance here in Texas you can't write in Ron Paul"

Not what it states here.

The candidate’s Declaration of Write-In Candidacy is filed with the Secretary of State along with the Vice-Presidential candidate’s form and the 34 “Consent” forms. The declaration may not be filed earlier than July 27, 2008, or later than 5:00 p.m. of August 26, 2008.

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

The best part is

You don't even need Ronald Earnest Paul, of Surfside, Texas to file the statements of candidacy.

Find some guy, ANY guy, with the name Ron Paul, and get him to sign the write-in papers.

The voters will not care that the Ron Paul they are voting for is actually Ronaldo Paul, a 38 year old septic pumping truck driver from Fargo, North Dakota.

No, I am not kidding.

RP2012!

? maybe IF your serious you will eleborate

I already did

Those who want to get Ron Paul as a write in, in their state, just need to recruit some guy named Ron Paul to sign the paperwork, and then it's a done deal.

Just like that. Nothing hard, except maybe finding some guy named Ron Paul and having him be willing to do this.

RP2012!

I have a hard time believing anybody could get away with that

LOL

Is there same law that says another guy named Ronald Paul cannot run as a write in candidate????

It may be silly and ridiculous, but at least the votes would be counted, and the history books would record that Ron Paul got write in votes, rather than them being tossed in the trash, along with every other vote for every other race on the person's ballot.

You Can't Write In Ron Paul

You can't write in Ron Paul in Texas, but Chuck Baldwin is listed on the Texas Secretary of State's website as an approved write-in candidate.

So you aren't stuck with Ralph Nader as someone on another topic claimed.

Texas missed the write in deadline

from the information I found.

Please read paul4won's post on the electors. IT"S THAT IMPORTANT

First, try to understand what paul4won is trying to tell us:http://www.dailypaul.com/node/61291#comment-640057.

That's the message that needs to be spread, that according to the constitution, in order to have fair representation, there is, as part of the election process, "electors" that send their signed and sealed votes in for the president and vice-president for ALL parties. GET IT? We must understand this process and how it works in order to effect any change! Seek out paul4won's posts...get specific with your questions if you do not understand this process.

Wrong

Each party appoints or elects it electors.

Those electors only get to cast their vote if their party wins. Those electors then cast their vote for whomever they please, but 99.99% of the time for the candidate who is the nominee of their party. Every party who puts a candidate on the ballot has a slate of electors, and independent candidates also certify a slate of electors.

The electors do NOT for for candidates from all parties. This is erroneous information.

Electors are elected, and then they vote, and almost every time (all except for 156 measely electoral votes in the entire history of our country), the electors have voted for the candidate they were "bound" to.

Sorry, but paul4won is wrong, despite her good intentions.

RP2012!

I understand some require "electors"

CNN was just whining about Nader 'stealing' votes from Obomb'a and
Ron causing problems in Montana.
I can't help but wonder... at the kind of upset and possible momentum if Ron Paul was on more! :)

Bump

Its important for those that poo poo the idea of writing in Ron Paul if you can get enough people around you to do the same then its doable.

Why hasn't the campaign been pushing this? Maybe they think its more possible to get a 3rd party candidate closer to getting elected. Either way if you want Ron Paul to have an impact in November it might be possible to get some recognition in your local district.
