Comment: In my state

(See in situ)

In my state

In Arkansas, they needed some 64,000 signatures to get the law to change about write-in voting for President, and they wanted them by July 6th I believe. Sadly I did not know this until late June.

I wish that I would've known sooner because this is something I would've made my top priority. I have no doubt that even people that don't support Ron Paul would've signed such a petition.

And it isn't just about Ron Paul. I think all people in all states should have the option of voting for whom they really want.

That being said, I know some of the states are different. Some require a candidate to register to BE a write-in candidate (and also name their VP).

I was just curious why this wasn't something that got addressed over the interim between campaigns. I would think the campaign itself would've fought this over the last 4 years.
