Wondering How Many Write-In Votes Nick Saban Got

posted by Mason - 

I heard a rumor that Alabama football coach Nick Saban got about 20,000 write-in votes in the Special Election between Doug Jones and Roy Moore.

Obviously, plenty of Alabamians who support the GOP couldn't support a candidate like Roy Moore, who'd twice been removed from the judicial bench. So when the results were in, about 22,000 write-in votes were cast. Uncle Henry of NewsRadio 710 WNTM almost certainly got votes (I know of at least one); and when the biggest stars in Alabama are football coaches, there's little doubt that both Gus Malzahn and Nick Saban got votes. 

Then there was this video from a progressive PAC, which explained how voters could cast a write-in vote. I'm sure it inspired a lot of people.

We should eventually know how many votes were cast for Nick Saban, because the AL Secretary of State needs to verify write-in votes as legit -- that is, they are cast for someone who is eligible for the office. But we don't actually know that answer now. It probably won't be 20,000 for Coach Nick, but I won't be surprised if he gets the most write-in votes on anyone.
