Duval County Releases Special Election Write-in Totals

resultsThe Duval County Supervisor of Elections has released the write-in vote totals for Tuesday's special general election for State Senate District 8.

Republican nominee John Thrasher was the lone candidate to appear on the ballot. Three other candidates had filed as legal write-ins, and thus only the totals for those three will be reported to the State of Florida and be recorded with the official results of the election.

Those were Robert Ratten (29 votes), John Rosso (12 votes), and Alden Bryanton (8 votes).

However, most voters that chose to write-in a name didn't go with a valid option. Former candidates Art Graham (162 votes), Dan Quiggle (117 votes), and Stan Jordan (81 votes) lead the pack by far.

While these are not valid votes, some of them are interesting and/or amusing to read over. For example, 16 voters chose to write in the term "Anybody Else" while 12 voted for "None" and 22 voters turned in totally blank ballots.

The word "Democrat" also got 8 votes.

Jacksonville's mayors got a few votes: John Delaney (10 votes), Jake Godbold (4), and one each for John Peyton, Ed Austin and Tommy Hazouri.

  1. Looks like 'we the people' came in dead last again, just like every other election I can remember.
