In most RI precincts the write-ins are counted as a block.
If the total is high enough to change the outcome, they are physically looked at and counted.
If not you will see a total for write-ins as a block.
Sometimes, weeks later, the election board will count SOME write ins just to say they did.
RON PAUL probably got more write in votes than we know of in 2008!
