Barr Sues Over McCain's, Obama's Presence on Texas Ballot

taliesin1077 Re:I hope they're removed, (918 comments)

You're right there. It makes no sense. However, no....one does not have to register so that others can write in their name. They have to register for said votes to even be counted.

Barr Sues Over McCain's, Obama's Presence on Texas Ballot

I don't know what the laws are in Texas for write-in candidates, but in California, one has to actually register for write-in candidate status. If someone writes in a candidate that has not registered for write-in status, their ballot is tossed without being counted for the election in which they wrote a name in.

Barr Sues Over McCain's, Obama's Presence on Texas Ballot

taliesin1077 Take them the heck off the ballot. (918 comments)

Actually, Barr is having to fight in a couple states for ballot access, despite having made the requisite number of signatures by the deadline specified by the states. Connecticut might be one? I'm pretty sure Virginia is as well. However, the Dems and the Reps, despite having missed the timeline, (and I've seen copies of the paperwork...they missed it) are granted ballot access carte blanche.
