Note #1: Democratic nominee Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney and have automatic ballot status in all 50 states and DC, so they are not included in the chart below.

Note #2: Party of Socialism & Liberation nominee Peta Lindsay is 27-years-old and is thus constitutionally ineligible to be elected President in 2012. Her ballot status below also includes the PSL surrogate stand-in slate in those states where Lindsay was legally barred from ballot access.
