WHERE: Alaska Division of Elections, 2525 Gambell St. Suite 100, Anchorage, AK 99503 (across from the Fireweed Theater). A news conference will follow the petition turn-in.
Alaskan supporters of Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader will turn in more than 5,000 petition signatures to the Division of Elections Tuesday. The required number of signatures is 3,128.
In 2000 the celebrated consumer advocate won three precincts in Alaska (Haines, Girdwood, and Talkeetna) and earned over 10 percent the vote. In this historic and pivotal election, Alaskans can now vote for a candidate who continues to fight against the special interest groups and multi-national corporations.
Mr. Nader is at 6 percent in the latest CNN poll. There can no longer be any justification -- if there ever was -- for Mr. Nader not being included in every national poll.
