The Last Election

Well during the last election if I saw an area where there was only a Republican Running I would write myself in. So I sent off an e-mail to the Kitsap County Elections Manager asking for the results of all the write ins. Well I get this reply.

Dear Tristan Pipo:

According to Washington State law, write-in names cannot be tallied or recorded unless the candidate files a declaration of write-in candidacy and pays the required filing fee for an office on the ballot or the total number of under votes, over votes and write-in votes are enough to make a difference in the outcome of a race.

Kitsap County had one declaration of write-in candidacy for the 35th Legislative District Position 2.  Valid write-in will be tallied for that race and reported as part of the official certification of the election November 28, 2006.

So the votes that I did for myself and Mickey Mouse are not counted and therefore they are not filed unless I pay money from what I am understanding. Well I guess my idea to take over the internet by voting for myself has failed. Well one can try. My campaign for Commissioner is now over. I guess I won’t be able to use Batman to fight the evil doers of Kitsap County. It is getting close to winter so we are almost dark all the time like Gotham City.
