Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain likely won't be the only presidential candidates listed on Alabama's ballot in November.

The campaigns of Ralph Nader, Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin and Cynthia McKinney hope to have their names spread across the top of Alabama's ballot along with the major party candidates.

It takes the signatures of 5,000 Alabama voters to get an independent presidential candidate on the ballot.

A spokesman for Nader said the campaign has already gotten more than that. The other three campaigns are still working on it, but hope to reach the goal.
