On December 14, West Virginia and California state elections officials finished tallying the votes, so now all results are in, except that Alaska, the District of Columbia, Iowa, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming have not tallied any write-ins for any presidential candidates (although some of those states have tallied the total number of presidential write-ins). States that would have counted write-ins for any declared presidential candidates, but in which no such candidates filed successfully, are Missouri, North Dakota, and Tennessee. States that don’t permit write-ins for President are Arkansas, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and South Dakota.
The West Virginia returns for the candidates who were on the ballot are: Mitt Romney 417,655; President Obama 238,269; Gary Johnson 6,302; Jill Stein 4,406; Randall Terry 3,806 (independent). West Virginia write-ins will be released next week.
The California returns are: Obama 7,854,285; Romney 4,839,958; Johnson 143,221; Stein 85,638; Roseanne Barr 53,824 (Peace & Freedom); Thomas Hoefling 38,372 (America’s Independent Party); and these write-ins: Ron Paul 21,461; Rocky Anderson 992; Virgil Goode 503; Stewart Alexander 82 (Socialist); Jerry White 79 (Socialist Equality); James Harris 72 (Socialist Workers); Stephen Durham 54 (Freedom Socialist); Sheila “Samm” Tittle 6.
