8. Yeah, so?

 


So what?

They can also write in any name they like too.

This is a thoroughly unremarkable feature of elections, that names appear on ballots even after candidates have stopped running, or in some instances, DIED:

A Democrat, he served as the 51st Governor of Missouri (1993-2000) and was elected posthumously to the U.S. Senate.

14. My dad always said he was going to vote for (the first) Chicago Mayor Daley after Daley died.

Since so many dead people voted for him while he was alive.

24. Yeah, shit happens

 


There are people who voted for dead candidates KNOWING they were voting for dead candidates.

The idea that people cast their votes on the basis of some sort of rational process is, by and large, utter fiction.

But, no, O'Malley will be on a lot of ballots going forward. It's not some sneaky scheme to siphon votes. It's just procedural inertia.

15. they have a filing deadline and then print them

people vote absentee, overseas ballots etc. NC ballots have already gone out for our 15 Mar. primary. O'Malley is likely on them.

11. Here's a site with a nice map of precincts (color-coded for candidates)

http://www.decisiondeskhq.com/

They have 6% precincts reporting (about 21,000 votes counted)--almost all purple (for Bernie) in the Dem map:

Bernie 57.5%
Hillary 41.4%

(Note: site glitch, just look below Hillary's name for her %.)

21. Strange. Cite I'm watching has Bernie 59.2%, Hillary 40.0%

with 9.9% precincts reporting. (Did Bernie lose 6 %-pts on .1% of votes counted? Not likely. Is somebody skewing reporting of results? I'm not looking at NH state cite.)
