Americans Elect On Track for Ballot Access Across the Country, 1.9 million signatures collected so far
Nonpartisan group has Plan B for picking president (NANCY BENAC, Associated Press, San Antonio Express News) Americans Elect, whose slogan is "pick a president, not a party," appears to be on track to secure ballot access across the country, with 1.9 million signatures collected so far. But how it will affect the 2012 race depends on what kind of candidate its delegates select in next June's online convention, which will be open to any registered voter... Getting on the ballot in all 50 states isn't all that unusual: The New Alliance Party's Lenora Fulani did in 1988. The Libertarians have done it multiple times. But none of them garnered a big share of the vote.
