West Virginia totals for the declared write-in presidential candidates who were on the ballot in at least one state are: Virgil Goode 119, Roseanne Barr 31, Rocky Anderson 12, Merlin Miller 11, Tom Hoefling 5, Richard Duncan 1.
Maryland, and almost all states that permit write-ins, only counts presidential write-ins for presidential candidates who filed a declaration of write-in candidacy. I presume there is someone somewhere who has changed his legal name to Santa Claus, and he must have filed for himself in Maryland and at least one other state (I forget which one now).
Ron Paul was not a candidate, so obviously he didn’t file. If people had been thinking ahead, and they wanted a tally of Ron Paul write-ins in most states, they should have found some other person named Ron Paul who would file as a declared write-in presidential candidate.

Me and my gf were thinking about voting for Miller but since he did absolutely did not have a chance to win at all like Stein, Johnson, Anderson, and Goode did, we voted Goode. So we are proud to say that 2 of those 119 votes for Goode came from us.
