For those who have opened their voting ballots already, you might have seen a name when looking through the "Partisan Office; U.S. Senator" that popped out at you when scanning the 30 different choices. That name is GoodSpaceGuy! Now in a world where "Deez Nutz" can run and actually gain ground in a presidential election, many people will just see the wacky name and vote for it. I was like that! In the past I've done write-ins for Mickey Mouse, Luke Skywalker, even Deez Nutz!

Some would say "you're throwing your vote away", and to those people, if you're not voting for the people they want, you are throwing your vote away. For me, it was sending a statement. Whatever your reason, just vote by Aug. 7, and hopefully educate yourself a little before you do so. When I saw his name, I did a double take and laughed, but I decided to learn a little bit about who could be our next senator, and I wanted to pass on that info to you.


According to Wikipedia, Michael George Nelson, legally changed his name to GoodSpaceGuy in 2006. GoodSpaceGuy has ran for public office many times including for  U.S. senator and Washington governor. He's run as a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian and as a candidate of the non-existent "Employmentwealth Party." He views himself as an amateur economist with a business background. His political positions generally revolve around his support for... you guessed it, space!

Now you know a little more about who you can vote for.
