11-6-12: Romney, Obama -- or Write-In?

Marylanders are facing a full ballot today – constitutional amendments, referendum questions, the U.S. Senate race – and, of course President. Some of the names in that race you know well: Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Also on the ballot are Gary Johnson of the Libertarian party and Jill Stein of the Green Party.
And in Maryland, voters also have the option of writing in someone for president. 23 people are registered as write-in candidates in this state, and four of them are from Maryland. We hear from several of the candidates running: Matt Lydick, Fred Donald Dickson (presidential hopefuls) and James Ogle, a Californian who's running as a write-in for vice-president (his running mate, Tiffany Briscoe, is from Maryland). Michael David Boyles lives on the Eastern Shore, and is also running for president as a write-in.
You can also write people in for congressional races as well. That’s happening right now in the First District on the Eastern Shore, where the Democratic Party is supporting a write-in candidate. Democrat Wendy Rosen was running against incumbent Republican Andy Harris, but she resigned after allegations that she voted in two states in the ’06 and ’08 elections. The Democratic Party is now supporting a write-in candidate, John LaFerla, a physician from Chestertown, who lost to Rosen in the Democratic primary.
We learn all about write-ins from Richard Winger, the Editor of Ballot Access News.
