Ballot Access Summary

Ballot Access News has some of the best information on ballot access. And, its editor/publisher Richard Winger is often very helpful with questions. The answers to all your ballot access questions can probably be found there.

That said, in a different place, I just stumbled across a very enlightening chart about ballot access for the presidential. You should definitely look up where your state is at. If it is not easy, then, try to fix it! (Probably for 2012!)

Also, take pity on your favorite major party insurgent, independent and/or third party candidates trying to organize in those states. Help, support, give money!

Found this chart on the web-site of the Socialist Party USA candidate for President: Brian Moore. http://www.votebrianmoore.com Thanks for the great work and sharing!
