Why was I not allowed to vote my choice?

I thought it was more a less a given right to write in a candidate. I have before. The sample ballot indicated that one could do so. After standing in line 2 hours I see that, nope, I have to vote for whoever is printed on the ticket. everything else, from senator to dog catcher had write-in options. The poll workers, a young and friendly lot, were clueless, God bless em. So, when voting in a presidential election, must one vote for the names printed on the ballot, or not participate at all? I realize a write in vote is a 'throwaway', that's not the question. I am not from SC, but had to vote there this year if that matters which it shouldn't.

Tipping of the 2004 election

What exactly was it in 2004 that suggested in the final weeks that John Kerry was going to win? Case in point here and here (yeah, I know the latter is a Democrat site). Maybe I have selective memory but I thought a lot of pundits had expected a Kerry win. Or did many neutral sources have Bush pegged? If not, what I'm trying to figure out is where the forecast errors were made, and whether these same issues could produce a surprise tomorrow (not counting a "Bradley effect", since that was of course not a factor in 2004).

Like most people I know, I'm pretty sick of the presidential election - to the point where I'm going to try something interesting this year. On Election Day, I'm taking the day off.
