    just throw their vote away.  An pretty much no one gets the message.  It's not like Palin (or Ron Paul) even gets the vote, but people think they're protesting.

        ballot, they will get the vote.  Only write-ins who have applied  and been approved (at least in our state) can actually have their vote counted.  Someone wrote in Ron Paul in our district.  Ron Paul wasn't one of the people who qualified, so he, nor Sarah Palin would have gotten the vote.  It doesn't take much to apply, but I guess people like Paul and Palin don't want to bother.
