Unlike those provided by the Secretary of States' office, included above are the numbers of write-ins and blanks.  Without these numbers, the percentages for each candidate would be incorrect and misleading.  Like votes for either candidate, a write-in is an expression of the voter, as is the withholding of a vote.
