Presidency2008: Ballot Access

Track which Presidential candidates have qualified for ballot spots in the various states. An "x" indicates the candidate has qualified for the ballot in a state. A question mark ("?") indicates a legal challenge is pending. "w/i" indicates the person is running as a filed write-in candidate in a state.

Note #1: Republican nominee John McCain and Democratic nominee Barack Obama have automatic ballot status in all 50 states and DC, so they are not included in the chart below.

Note #2: Socialist Workers Party nominee Roger Calero is a naturalized US citizen who is constitutionally ineligible to be President. His ballot status below also includes the stand-in slate headed by substitute SWP nominee James Harris in those states where Calero was legally barred from ballot access.
