Write-In Ballot Wins or Wasted Votes?

Good takes a look at the "impressive, community-driven" write-in campaigns for unlikely candidates, "possibly signaling the voting practices in the future."

"Naysayers will say a write-in vote is simply throwing your vote away (especially since write-in candidates have to be pre-registered with the state to even be considered). But in the case of Hank and Darwin, the write-in votes are not a personal statement but part of a larger, community voice. These ridiculous, but successful, campaigns this election season point to answers of how third-party candidates can stand a chance of success in future elections."
