2000 Presidential Status Summary (table)

The following table summarizes the ballot-access data from the October 1st 2000 issue of Ballot Access News, including updates through November 3rd. The table shows some important facts: (1) there are only two candidates on all ballots -- the Democratic and Republican candidates -- but three parties, because the Libertarians have another candidate in Arizona, (2) there are only seven candidates who have a theoretical chance at more than 270 Electoral College Votes, and (3) there are only sixteen candidates who are on even one state ballot. Not counted or shown here are any write-in candidacies.
