What a long, long day!
We just finished counting up the write-in votes in Charlottesville at 10:35 p.m. Considering that I've been awake since 4:00 o'clock a.m., I'm going to forgo analyzing those results until a more conscious moment, perhaps tomorrow after the canvass is complete.
To whet your appetite, however, I will mention that "Bernard Madoff" earned a vote for Commissioner of the Revenue and "Scrooge McDuck" was someone's preference for Charlottesville Treasurer. Over 800 write-in votes were cast, mostly in the uncontested races for School Board, Commonwealth's Attorney, Commissioner of the Revenue, and Treasurer -- though there were also write-in votes in the triple digits for City Council. By contrast, the statewide races and the contest for the House of Delegates received only a handful of write-in votes.
Here are a few photos I took during the course of the day.
