Today I spoke to the Election Commission about votes cast for John Edwards tomorrow.
(1) All votes will count for the candidate they are cast for. They will be counted, as well as reported to the media, who will report them as legitimate votes. (Then it may take several days for the town clerks to certify them since they have to wait for absentee votes, etc., to come in.)
What happens to those votes is up to the state Democratic Committee so I called them.
Per the Mass Democratic Committee:
(2) Any candidate who achieves the 15% threshold (by precinct) will keep the delegates he wins and those delegates will go to the national convention as if the candidate was still running. In Denver, the candidate will meet with his delegates and instruct them what to do with their vote – at the convention!
If you vote for Edwards, your vote will count!
