Supreme Court Won't Put Nader on Ballot in Ohio

Published on October 26, 2004, by in General.

Today the Supreme Court declined to put Ralph Nader on the ballot in Ohio.

On Friday, Nader asked the high court to review Ohio’s decision to remove him, arguing that a state law that requires people who collect signatures on candidates’ petitions be registered voters violated free speech rights.

Nader’s request for a review went to Justice John Paul Stevens, who referred the matter to the full court. The justices denied the request without comment Tuesday.

    Despite being on a higher number of state ballots, I believe this means that Nader’s total of potential electoral votes is lower than Cobb’s. Depending on Hawaii, Nader is either 278 or 282 while Cobb is at 286.
