Professional football players dream of being selected to the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Few would hope they get votes at the political ballot box, but that’s exactly what we saw here in northern Wisconsin during the most recent Recall Election that had Democrat Tom Barrett trying to unseat Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

One individual Tweeted on his Twitter account that they had voted for Greg Jennings and after a check with Minocqua, Woodruff and Arbor Vitae town clerks found that a local had voted for Bart Starr. And while there was the usual Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck write-ins, one can only guess just how many counties actually recorded votes for other Packers players. You’ve got to believe that there had to be at least a few for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, cornerback Charles Woodson and linebacker Clay Matthews.

In the meantime, here’s a story by The Lakeland Times’ Joe VanDeLaarschot that explains the local situation at the voting booth.
