The Chester County Department of Voter Services lists a total of 143 Democratic write-ins and 272 Republican write-ins for Representative in the General Assembly in the 26th District. The Pennsylvania Department of State on the other hand certified that there were 0 write-ins by Democrats and 0 write-ins by Republicans. You gota love our democracy where very vote counts.
I don't know how many were for Tom Powell (whom based on the yard signs I saw outside the polling place I was at tried a write-in campaign) and myself whom also encouraged voters to write my name in. Guess we never will...
