Skip to comments.Denied right to vote (Vanity)
Posted on 04/24/2012 7:05:19 AM PDT by NTHockey
I went to vote in the Delaware primary today as a registered Republican. I was going to cast my vote for Governor Sarah Palin, as a write-in. After I entered the voting booth, I was told that write-ins are not permitted. I was not offered a provisional ballot, as they should have done. So I walked out without voting.
I have already called the Department of Elections, who referred me to my State Rep. No call back yet. Will keep you updated.
Just go vote for Newt.
The time to lobby for allowing write-ins is probably long passed.
You weren’t denied the right to vote. You chose not to vote for any of the available candidates.
Stay at the voting place and refuse to leave.
She is not a candidate. You must vote for a candidate
I don’t know what the laws are in Delaware. Write in votes have always been legal in Pennsylvania. I live in such a heavily Democrat county that often I have to write in because there is no Republican on the ballot for a lot of the local offices.
You figure if he is arrested, he can’t post vanities?
Write-ins weren’t permitted in Virginia either. We had a wonderful choice between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney. Many voted against Romney, and Paul garnered 40 percent of the votes.
No write-ins in primaries here. It’s not an election.
You were not denied the right to vote, you could have voted. There was no candidate you chose to vote for so you left.
What about all the other offices? Did you not vote on those?
nobody pays any attention to write ins anyway. Palin is not in the primary, so writing her in is a waste.
And this is how we lose elections, over and over and over again.
to the one who DIDN’T vote because he couldn’t write in Sarah, I say VOTE!!!!!
You do this in November and YOU are the one of the reasons our country is in this awful state.
By failing to VOTE you FAIL. I wish I could print this in 72 point type.
You can read her books though.

a) Who I vote for is my business, NOT some unelected bureaucrat telling me to vote for X or Y.
b) There were no other offices to vote in this a Presidential Primary. The State Primary I believe is in June, after the state convention of the RINOs.
Not having write-ins is not the same as being denied the right to vote.
Many states dont have write in choices. It is a waste of ink anyway.
Sarah Palin is not on the ballot. How were you denied your right to vote?
For XXXX’s sake! Who would Palin have voted for? Who did she cast her support to? Get back to the polls and cast a Republican vote! You can vote for Palin in November as a write-in, if you wish!
I don’t know about Delaware, but here in Virginia, write-ins aren’t allowed in primaries. But hey——at least you can vote for Newt. Here, my only choices were the liberal abortionist homo lover, or the doddering nutcase!
When you vote in an actual election you will have a write-in available.
Primaries are not elections.
Sarah's in the race, fighting against establishment BS.
And that establishment, in both parties, needs to go.
