Rhode Island

Executive Director Bob Kando of the Rhode Island Board of Elections said that he is not aware of there being any procedures in Rhode Island -- voters just write the candidate's name in. One would assume, however, that in the event the write-in candidate wins, he/she would need to have the 4 electors to place their votes in the electoral college. This would be the case in any state in which a write-in candidate for President wins the general election, whether or not the state required the candidate to have the electors beforehand or not.
