Santa Claus Among Idaho Write-Ins

Mr. Claus is on the list of write-ins who have field a declaration of intent. Votes cast for old St. Nick will be counted, along with those for 33 others who've filed with the Secretary of State's office. Claus lives in Incline Village, Nev., home of Diamond Peak Ski Resort. Other notables include Roseanne Barr of Kamuela, Hawaii; Rev. Merepeace-Msmere of Boise; Gerald Warner of Moscow; Chance White of Pocatello; and Texas inmate Keith Judd, who got 40 percent of the vote against President Obama in the West Virginia primary. For a write-in vote to be counted, the candidate's name must be written in the spot for the presidential race and must not be accompanied by a vote for any of those listed on the ballot/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.

Question: Have you ever voted for a write-in on an election ballot? Who? Which race?
