Should You or Someone You Know Write In Charles Darwin?

How can you tell your elected officials that you care about science? At the ballot box.

Radio host Neal Boortz recently started a campaign urging his listeners living in Georgia’s 10th congressional district to write in Charles Darwin’s name instead of casting their ballot for unopposed Paul Broun, who said—on video—that evolution and the Big Bang are “lies straight from the pit of hell.”

We urged you to expand that campaign and write in Darwin’s name anywhere an unopposed incumbent failed to respect science. Well, with just a day before we all cast our ballots (if you haven’t already) we compiled the below list of unopposed incumbents.

If you live in any of these places, check your official’s record on science. If you don’t think their actions fail to show respect for the world’s most important discipline, I suggest you write in Mr. Darwin.
