Ralph Nader Gets on Alabama's Presidential Ballot

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Democrat Barack Obama and Republican
John McCain won't be the only presidential candidates listed on
Alabama's ballot Nov. 4.

The secretary of state's office reports that Ralph Nader will definitely be on the ballot. It takes the signatures of 5,000 Alabama voters for someone other than a Democrat or a Republican to get listed on the ballot as an independent candidate. Nader's campaign has already submitted its signatures and had them verified.

Libertarian candidate Bob Barr's campaign has turned in more than 8,000 signatures. They are still being verfied, but a campaign spokesman predicts it will be more than enough to make the Alabama
ballot.

The Constitution Party's candidate, Chuck Baldwin, has turned in nearly 4,200. His campaign plans to submit more before the deadline at 5 p.m. Friday.

The Green Party's candidate, Cynthia McKinney, has not submitted signatures to get on the Alabama ballot.
