What'ya bet Bernie Sanders gets more votes as a write-in this election than Jill Stein or even Gary Johnson?

You shoulda took the bet.

Only a few details are known so far about how many write-in votes Bernie Sanders got. Most states will release detailed write-in results once their election counts are certified, which in some cases may be a few days from now but in other cases won’t happen until near the end of November. In some states, we may never know the write-in counts because they tally all the write-ins together, and only count them individually if the total could make a difference in determining who wins the state. According to Dave Leip’s election stats, there were 732,635 write-in votes cast nationally (although that number could rise as more votes are processed.) This accounts for .56 percent of the popular vote, fewer votes than Jill Stein and Gary Johnson received. Since the write-ins weren’t all for Bernie Sanders, he would not have won, even if they were all counted.

Only about 12 states even allowed voters to write in Sanders for president and have that vote potentially count. These were Alabama, California, Iowa, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, and Wyoming. (Although a few of these states have disputed facts about write-in rules. Read more here.) Other states might have received write-in votes for Bernie, but most won’t be counting them.
