I'll bet most of you probably didn't know this: Nevada had an option on their ballots - voters who weren't impressed with the candidates in any race could choose None of the Above to register their displeasure. Recently, however, a federal court threw that option off their ballots.
Who was behind this and why? My fantastic buddy David 2, in this week's BRUTALLY HONEST commentary, has the answers: http://brutallyhonestcolumn.blogspot.com/2012/09/week-of-09102012.html

That's HORRIBLE that a voter can't put in 'none of the above' ! Or write in Mickey Mouse, Elvis, or other. I dislike both Obama and Romney. I'll vote Libertarian, I guess.
There is nothing keeping you from writing anything or anyone you wish in the "write-in" line. If you choose to write-in "Mickey Mouse" (which wouldn't surprise me after reading some of your postings) you are perfectly free to do so. If you want to write "none of the above" you are free to do so.
Your postings on political matters demonstrate a profound amount of mis/dis information.
I'm not sure what it's like in other states, but IIRC, in both Missouri and Illinois, you have to REGISTER and get petition signatures to be even eligible to be a write-in candidate - to keep people from casting what TPTB term "frivolous" write-in votes.
And people wonder why both corporate-controlled parties are losing respect...
