CANTON, Ohio - Actor Clint Eastwood, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow and comedian Jon Stewart all received write-in votes for president in the battleground state of Ohio.
A review by The Canton Repository of ballots cast Tuesday found submissions silly, stupid and sublime among 242 write-ins cast in Stark County.
There were votes for God and Jesus; for Tebow, car racing icon Richard Petty and other sports stars; for fictional characters including Tigger, Cookie Monster and Eric Cartman, the foul-mouthed schoolboy from TV's South Park; and votes for Eastwood, Stewart and Jay Leno.
One voter wrote in Democratic U.S. Sen. John Kerry, eight years too late.
The county's deputy elections director said votes for unregistered candidates don't count, but they're a good source of entertainment.
