Wisconsin Elections Commission approves presidential ballot

MADISON — Wisconsin election officials have approved placing five candidates on the state's presidential ballot besides Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

The state Elections Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to place the Constitution Party's Darrell Castle, Libertarian Gary Johnson, the Wisconsin Green Party's Jill Stein, Monica Moorehead of the Workers World Party and Rocky Roque De La Fuente of the American Delta Party on the ballot.

Commission staff wrote in a memo to members that all five candidates as well as Trump and Clinton have met the standards to be on the ballot.

The most recent Marquette University Law School poll released on Aug. 10 showed Clinton leading Trump by 15 points among likely Wisconsin voters.
