Nader plans to be on Colorado ballot

DENVER (AP) ” Ralph Nader’s campaign plans to file paperwork to get on Colorado’s ballot on Thursday.

The independent presidential candidate has already applied for a spot on the ballots of three other states. His campaign says Colorado’s relatively low bar for securing a spot on the ballot is one of the nation’s most democratic.

All Nader has to do is submit a $500 fee along with the names of nine people who would vote for him in the Electoral College should he win the state.

Nader hopes to get approval to be on ballots in ten states before the end of the month. The campaign says he’s on track to be on ballots in more than 40 states before November’s election.
