AP reports: The state Ballot Law Commission voted 5-0 yesterday to keep independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader on the Nov. 2 ballot.

The commission rejected a Democratic challenge to some of Nader's petition signatures. ...

Emily Rice, who represented the state Democratic party, argued that Nader's campaign workers collected petition signatures this year through widespread fraud and deceit. She said many people were deceived about what they were signing.

State law makes no provision for appeals from the commission's decisions. But lawyers for Nader said they expected Democrats to ask the state Supreme Court to consider the issue. -- State Ballot Law Commission says Nader can stay in mix (AP via TheUnionLeader.com)
