New Yorkers Voted For A Bunch Of Celebrities Instead Of Actual Candidates

Taylor Swift, Derek Jeter, and Frank Underwood all got votes.

Andrew Cuomo may have won his second term as governor in November, but many New Yorkers opted to vote for celebrities and fictional characters instead.

The New York City Board of Elections has released its voting data, which includes everyone who received a write-in vote. Here are some of the more outlandish options:

1. Taylor Swift got several votes. The Kaci Hickox/T-Swift ticket landed two votes of its own.

6. Barack Obama received a vote, though he might have other commitments.

7. MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes got a vote.

8. Clark Kent, a fictional journalist and the alter ego for Superman (also fictional), received two votes.

9. This guy got a vote.

10. Someone was feeling nostalgic when they wrote in a Michael Dukakis/Al Gore ticket.

11. Edward Snowden even got some votes. (Though if he won, he'd probably have to telecommute since he's wanted in the U.S. for espionage.)


12. And Tina Fey received a vote along with someone named "AMY DOEHLER"
