Default AIP Results Show Large Percentage Of Write-in

this may be an anomoly, but I've clicked on the results for the AIP governors results, and nightingale is ahead, but not by as much as I would have thought. Markham Robinson, her opponent did little to no campaigning in comparison to the blowhardiness of nightingale with her perpetual emails, public appearances, and radio broadcasts. For a guy who wasn't applying any real effort, he has been trailing her by a small margin in many counties thus far.
But the real surprise is how many write-in votes there were in the AIP Governor race. Large percentage really

the write in's surpassed the vested candidates?

CHELENE NIGHTINGALE 51 35.66%
MARKHAM ROBINSON 29 20.28%
Write-in Votes 63 44.06%



I can't remember seeing such a large percentage of write-in before

this is just a sampling of course, but that percentage of write-ins shows that either some were clearly not happy with either candidate, or...they decided to cross party lines and vote republican to actually make their vote make a difference this time.
