Nader on the Wisconsin ballot
TheMilwaukeeChannel.com reports: The state Elections Board has decided to keep independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader on the Wisconsin ballot.
A split board voted Tuesday to reject two motions seeking to kick Nader (pictured, right) off the ballot.
The Democratic Party of Wisconsin filed a complaint with the Elections Board earlier this month.
Democrats argued that Nader's petitions didn't include an elector from the 7th Congressional District, and there has to be one from every congressional district in the state.
Nader's attorneys argued that there wasn't one because the boundaries were redrawn, moving that person from the district. The board decided that wasn't enough to keep Nader off the ballot. -- Nader Will Appear On Wisconsin Ballot (TheMilwaukeeChannel.com)
According to this site, the congressional redistricting plan was adopted in 2001. If there has not been a later plan, then what kind of excuse can Nader's backers have for being three years out of date? Or am I missing something?
