In the primaries, I noted we can vote write in. I am going to check with the Court House, to make certain that in November, my write in vote will be not only counted and recorded, but also published in the newspaper for our County.
Here's some information on write-ins, from Wikipedia:
(I can't vote the primary because I'm registered Independent, but that's okay, I'd just as soon not associate myself with any of the establishment parties, they all drive me crazy.)
The Wiki page above includes this funny story about write-ins:
A bizarre incident involving a fictitious write-in candidacy occurred in the small town of Picoazá, Ecuador in 1967. A company ran a series of campaign-themed advertisements for a foot powder called Pulvapies. Some of the slogans used included "Vote for any candidate, but if you want well-being and hygiene, vote for Pulvapies", and "For Mayor: Honorable Pulvapies." The foot powder Pulvapies ended up receiving the most votes in the election.Ooops!!! :)
