Ron Paul is not an "Official Write-in Candidate For President" in Washington but Santa Claus is. Apparently Santa wants to be president at this time enough to fill out the simple form that Washington requires. Santa's name is at the bottom of page 2 on this document from the Washington Secretary of State's web page: http://www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/elections/2012PresidentVicePre...
Read this important information in the heading of that document: "Votes for an individual write-in candidate will not be tallied by name unless the total number of write-in votes cast exceeds the votes cast for the top vote getter"
It is clear that there will be no way to tell in the final total of votes if a Washington resident voted for Ron Paul, Santa Claus, or one of the other 30 write-in candidates . . .
