I talked with Secretary of State Matt Schultz this afternoon. He confirmed there were write-in votes counted in Texas Governor Rick Perry’s tally that did not spell the Texan’s name correctly.

But most of the 218 “scattered” votes on Saturday were write-in votes for fictional characters — the State Fair’s Butter Cow topped the list.
Oh, and there was at least one write-in vote for a Barack Obama. Read more here.
