Ralph Nader is currently on the ballot in 32 states. Twelve of those states are currently in litigation. In addition, the Nader/Camejo Campaign is in litigation in seven other states where we are currently off the ballot. In six states our ballot petitions are pending. For the specifics, see a map summarizing ballot access at www.votenader.org.

Despite an unprecedented effort by the Democratic Party to keep the Nader-Camejo campaign off the ballot the campaign is succeeding to get on throughout the country, especially in swing states. For more on the Democratic Party effort to keep Nader-Camejo off the ballot see "Parties to Injustice: Democrats Will Do Anything To Keep Me Off the Ballot," by Ralph Nader.

"Now that the ballot access phase of this independent campaign will soon be behind us, I am looking forward to debating issues of concern to the American people with President Bush and Senator Kerry," said Nader.
