ME: Maine Campus Highlights Independent's Struggle for Ballot Access

From the Maine Campus:
To get on the ballot in September, Independent candidates in the 2010 gubernatorial election need to collect 4,000 verified signatures from registered Maine voters by May 25. As of March 16, Kevin Scott had less than 1,500 after stops from Portland to Presque Isle. Those signatures haven’t come easily. “I’ve spent eight-hour days over the course of a weekend knocking on doors and gathering 100 signatures,” Scott said in a February telephone interview. “The challenge is really time.”
