Roseanne Barr, ex-Va. Congressman on W.Va. Ballot

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Actress-comedian Roseanne Barr, Santa Claus and former Virginia Rep. Virgil Goode are among more than two dozen write-in presidential candidates certified for West Virginia's ballot.

But a Texas inmate who attracted nearly 41 percent of the vote against President Barack Obama in the Democratic primary won't be on the general election ballot.

The Charleston Gazette ( ) says Keith Judd requested to be placed on the ballot. But the Secretary of State's Office's response telling Judd what he had to do be certified was dated Sept. 17, one day before the deadline for write-in candidates to be certified.

Santa Claus is a Nevada man known as Thomas O'Connor until he legally changed his name in 2005. He also was a write-in candidate in 2008.
