Nader on the ballot in 32 states

Washington, DC: The Independent Presidential Campaign of Ralph Nader and Peter Camejo has submitted 4,781 signatures in Minnesota today. The state requires 2,000 valid signatures.

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.
