Thousands of Vermonters write-in votes for Sanders

Posted: Updated:

Bernie Sanders' name was not on the ballot Tuesday, but a lot of Vermonters voted for him by writing in his name.

According to unofficial results compiled by the secretary of state, Sanders received over 18,000 write-in votes for president. That's almost 6 percent of the total and more than the Libertarian and Green Party candidates combined.

But you won't find similar results for Sanders across the country. Nine states don't even allow write-ins. And many others require write-in candidates to register to have their votes tallied.
