Charleston voter write-ins included ‘a rock,’ ‘Chuck Norris’ and ‘Bill Murray' for office

Bill Murray (Paul Sherwood / MGN)

Rather than voting for the listed candidates on the ballot, many Charleston County voters wrote in their own not-so-serious choices for a number of contests in Tuesday's general election.

If they had their way, actor and Charleston resident Bill Murray would be sworn in to almost every elected office in the South Carolina.

That’s according to an unofficial write-in report provided by the Charleston County Board of Elections and Registration.

The silly and sarcastic write-ins included a number of Disney characters, religious figures and plenty of write-in votes for Donald Trump.

The write-in candidate with the most votes, however?

Mickey Mouse.

Voters "trolled" the race for Comptroller General the most, making us wonder if this is some sort of Charleston County voting tradition.
