BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Libertarian Party supporters have turned

in petitions seeking the party's own column on North Dakota's

statewide ballot.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger says Libertarian Party backers need

signatures from at least 7,000 North Dakota voters. Jaeger says the

petitions turned in Tuesday will be checked over the next few days

to see if they have enough names.

If the Libertarian Party gets its own column, the party will be

able to put its own candidates on the ballot for the June primary

election and the November general election.

Currently, only the Democratic and Republican parties have their

own columns on North Dakota's statewide ballot. Other candidates

are usually listed as independents.
