Here is the ballot we will see on Tuesday:
Virginia Primary Ballot
No write-ins allowed.
You can either vote for Romney, Paul, or do an "undervote" (choose neither, and click on "Next").
I’d vote Paul and encourage all others to do the same.
Can’t think of any thing that would get the point to the GOPEe any better than a Paul victory in VA.
If your still using a ‘paper-less’ voting machine, it really doesn’t matter.
I say vote Ron Paul.
Vote for Paul!
I’d stay home, Romney will dominate this one with nary a political ad.
Staying home. No chance I’m giving a vote to loony Ron “Bradley Manning is a hero and a patriot” Paul. Won’t vote for Romney in a primary either.
Paul, Paul, Paul! Deny Romney the delegates!
If I lived in VA, I’d vote for Paul.
Romney may win VA, but every delegate that can be scraped away from Romney helps.
I’m voting for Paul just to jab a stick in the eye of Mitt and the party bosses.
PAUL. He may not win, but he has a chance to embarass the GOP-e.
I’m voting for Paul as a protest
Source: Virginia State Board of Elections on Write-ins
Virginia election law (§ 24.2-529) does not permit write-in votes for primary elections. No ballot issued during the Republican Primary on March 6, 2012 will contain an area where a write-in name may be included. In the case of electronic voting equipment, the option for a write-in vote has been disabled. In the case of paper ballots, if a name is written in a blank area on a ballot, or a name is scratched through and another is inserted, it will not register as a vote. In no way will defacement of an official ballot be tallied as a vote for any person other than those candidates currently listed.
Virginia law requires that any person appearing on a party's presidential primary ballot receive signatures from at least 10,000 Virginians who are duly registered to vote with a minimum of 400 signatures required from each of Virginia's 11 congressional districts. The Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) required that these signatures be placed on official petitions which were circulated by Virginia residents, and that these petitions be filed with SBE by December 22, 2011. The political parties in Virginia are responsible for the counting of those petition signatures and the state Republican Party certified to SBE that only two candidates met the requirements for ballot access: Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.
I’m planning on voting for Nor Luap, purely as a protest vote. Even if the fix is in for Mittens, at least I took a stand in the voting booth. . .
A vote for Paul means a vote against Romney. Anything else is a vote for Romney.
I was going to vote for Paul, but after hearing that he sent fliers around to Muslims telling them he would cut off all aid to Israel, I can’t do it. I’ll just do an undervote.
Their boy is Romney, so that necessarily means any real American has to vote for the other guy whoever he is.
Vote Ron Paul because he is not Mitt.
Vote Paul! Operation Chaos II!
