    In Madison County, Ohio, elections officials used a marking pen on all ballots to blacken out the Libertarian and Constitution Party candidates for president, who had qualified for the ballot in Ohio and whose names had been printed on all state ballots. When voters asked why, it became apparent that the county elections office had taken the order to blacken out Nader’s name, as a blanket order to blacken out the names of all the minor party presidential candidates, leaving only Kerry and Bush.
