188. Nader was on the ballot here - it's just that if you voted for him your
vote DIDN'T COUNT!!! Imagine that!!! Most counties refused to re-print the ballots after Nader was disqualified. Here in my county we fought to have the ballots reprinted, whch they did (but of course they bitched because it cost $13,000 to do). That was their fault. They shouldn't have printed the ballots in the first place until all candidates were finalized. Another problem with that is that the absentee ballots had already been sent out with Nader's name on it. At that point, how many people actually knew that Nader was disqualified? I'd say not many because the "little slip of paper" with the note that Nader doesn't count was not in with those absentees. ALL the ballots in EVERY county should have been reprinted - but, Blackwell didn't order it done. Wonder why????
