Comment: Thanks all!

(See in situ)

Thanks all!

I genuinely appreciate everyone's comments.

I feel like I've been hit by a Mack truck every time I mention I will vote for Gary Johnson if Ron Paul is not on the ballot in my state. People just don't seem to understand that some states do not allow write-in votes at all. Some do, but the candidate has to file a declaration of intent and name his VP, etc.

I've been called a traitor, and worse. It's really those people, the ones that seem to think I can magically cast a write-in vote, that drive me crazy. Most openly brag that they have been supporters since 2008-so I've just started asking why they didn't change the write-in vote situation during the pause.

In my state, if you ask for a paper ballot (which I do), there is a big warning across the top that says DO NOT WRITE ON THIS BALLOT! It messes with the scanner that reads the votes.

I cannot, and will not risk invalidating my entire ballot because our Congressman HAS to go.

Again, thanks everybody. I shouldn't have posted out of frustration after being maligned today for something I knew nothing about until late June of this year. I apologize.
