Dear Essex County Clerk,

I am writing to find out write-in results for President in the November election. Do you have a tally by candidate? I would like to find out how many votes were cast for Frank Moore?

Thanks so much,

Corey Nicholl

Absolutely. By the way, Essex county, while tiny geographically, has 100,000 more people in it than the entire state of Alaska! Too bad no one else here voted for you…

Hi Richard,
Do you have presidential write-in results for any of the following states? Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin. I believe you had said that Alaska had decided not to count write-ins, and that Oregon has the same policy? But just wanted to confirm … Thanks for any info you have on these states!

Most of the states in the list below have no declaration of write-in law, and theoretically ought to count all write-ins. Delaware in the past has counted all of them, but they don’t usually release it for quite a while after the election. Alabama has already put up all its write-ins on its election web page. Most counties didn’t bother to report any. Pennsylvania says it will put up its write-ins on its webpage soon. But 18 counties, including Philadelphia, didn’t bother to count or tally any. The state combed thru the reports from the counties and arbitrarily decided to canvass those for Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul, and Chuck Baldwin. Cynthia McKinney was not included. But most of the counties probably reported all their write-ins, so it’s possible Frank will be listed.

Traditionally, Iowa, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont, never release any write-in information. No one pressures those 4 states to do so because their ballot access laws are very easy and virtually anyone with any campaign always gets on in those 4. But this year Vermont elections department did me a favor and did tally Cynthia McKinney’s write-ins. She got 66. It was the first time Vermont Secretary of State had ever tallied write-ins for any particular presidential candidate in November.

Idaho and Wisconsin did have write-in declarations of candidacy and have always been good about reporting the write-ins for those who filed the declaration. I haven’t checked with those two states, out of sheer laziness. Nader write-ins were reported by Idaho in both 2000 and 2004. This year he finally got on the Idaho ballot. Did Frank file in those 2 states?

Oregon, Alaska, Washington, and D.C. won’t provide a tally, even though all 4 places have a declaration of write-in. I am hoping that Oliver Hall will sue D.C. on behalf of Barr and Baldwin. That is the obvious place to sue since a D.C. court ruled in 1974 that such write-ins must be tallied.

yep, penn. is one of the states i’d expect we’d get some votes in.

“Official” vote count so far ….

Blue House wrote:

Here is the “official” vote count so far … Nationwide, this shows Frank with 53 votes. This does not include Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin, all states where Frank was also qualified. Nebraska does not tally them. Neither do the states of Washington, Oregon, or Alaska. I’m sending a separate email from Richard Winger which talks more about who did and didn’t tally write-in votes, and some history … Alabama does have a huge .pdf file up on their site, showing handwritten tallies of all the write-in votes, but it will be a major undertaking to go through it all and see if Frank shows up … started on it though!
