Write-in follies in Vermont

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - September 9, 2008

But elections officials hope they don't see any votes for Mickey Mouse, Madonna or Bart Simpson.

Manchester Town Clerk Linda Spence says some voters might think the joke write-ins are funny.

But she says it wastes the taxpayers' money.

Officials say the write-in ballots have to be counted by hand, which can be an expensive and time-consuming process.
