'Best lesson from this page though is that if you ever run a write in campaign, make sure voters know the EXACT way you want your candidate written in. (spelling AND spacing!)'
Better still, is that we not allow such 'must-be-written in perfectly' laws to be enacted in the first place or nullify them. If a name appears on the ballot as 'Ron Paul' or 'Ron E. Paul', or whatever version of a name that is obviously still the same person, it shouldn't matter. Why would we tolerate laws that would void the vote otherwise?
