There Were More Than 36,000 Write-In Votes Cast in Ohio for This Election

A new Associated Press report confirms more than 20,000 "uncertified" write-in votes cast in Ohio during the Nov. 8 presidential election. That's on top of the 16,000 votes cast for "certified" write-in candidates.

John Glenn and Urban Meyer were "favorites" among the write-in set this year, according to the Columbus Dispatch. Reports that the late Cincinnati Zoo gorilla Harambe was raking in the write-in votes have gone unconfirmed.

Even Gov. John Kasich chose this route: He wrote in Sen. John McCain's name on his ballot. And Sen. Rob Portman wrote in Gov. Mike Pence's name in the top-of-the-ticket presidential slot.

To make this news even more interesting, though, consider than the 2012 presidential election saw only 37 write-in votes here in Ohio.

Hard to say what the big difference was this year.
