Here's the problem...

...officially, PA is supposed to count all write-in votes, and PA does not require the write-in candidate to register. So we're good, right? Not quite. In practice, write-in votes in many counties in PA simply do not get counted. They just ignore the law, and that's that. In others, they'll count them, but only report them in aggregate as "other" or "write-in." If you're in PA like me, your Ron Paul vote may or may not be counted, but I can assure you of this: a sizable portion of the votes in PA will definitely not be counted, and of those that are counted, few if any of them will be reported as belonging to Ron Paul, most will get reported as "other" or "write-in."

This is in contrast to a vote for Gary Johnson, who, being on the ballot, will have all of his votes counted and reported fully.
