West Virginia write-in candidates include Santa Claus

Sep 25, 2008 There is a Santa Claus in West Virginia, U.S.A. running for president as a write -in candidate. (A write-in candidate is a candidate in an election whose name does not appear on the ballot, but for whom voters may vote nonetheless by writing in the person's name.)
Known as Thomas O'Connor until 2005 when he legally change his name to Santa Claus lives near Lake Tahoe. Thanks to the state's easy registration rules all the West Virginian have to do is file a form at least 42 days before the election unlike most states which put a number of hurdles before write-in candidates, ranging from requiring dozens of forms to identifying presidential electors for the candidate. The primary reason Santa said he is running is that Obama and McCain have refused for more than a year to address the plight of the 2 million children in the U.S. annually who are abused, neglected, exploited, abandoned, homeless, and institutionalized through no fault of their own.
