    Here in CT there are four people in Meriden that say they voted for Baldwin and one in Willimantic and both those towns show no vote for Baldwin. The one in Wiilimatic was a registered write-in for state senate and they show zero votes for that office too.

    Make that 186,337 votes. I can confirm at least two votes in Marion County, Indiana, where they apparently refuse to count qualified write-ins! If I ever get the time, I will contact the county election board and see if there is any way to get them counted.

    Conservatives are weary of big-government, nanny-government, “moderate” Republicans. For such folks, the Constitution Party is more than an ALTERNATIVE, it is the ANSWER!

    The Constitution Party is the 3rd largest political party in the United States, and the fastest growing of the so-called “third” political parties.
