ballot signatures

The Nader people knew they needed professional help to collect ballot signatures. For example, Nader needed 14,694 signatures to make the ballot in Arizona. The best way to show what a long shot that was is to jump ahead in time to November. Nader was destined to get only 2773 votes in the entire state. --from<Gaming the Vote:Why Elections Aren’t Fair> By William Poundstone

    To be able to run in the elections, a small party needs to have registered support through legimitate signatures by voters.
