President Jesse Ventura 2016
Getting Jesse Ventura on the Ballot for 2016 and to the DEBATES
Leading up to the 2012 presidential elections, Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura stated that he would consider a run for president in the 2016 elections if there were a grassroots movement to help spread the word. In a September 2012 radio interview with Alan Colmes, Ventura, who served as Minnesota Governor from 1999 to 2003, indicated he would consider running for president.
Around the same time, during his book promotion for "DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government," Ventura spoke with talk show host Larry King and Piers Morgan about a run in 2016. Ventura said there would be 2 criteria for him to run: a grassroots movement that doesn't cost money to get him on the ballots in all 50 states and the movement to be vocal enough to guarantee him in a spot in the debates. Ventura said "without the debates, you're dead in the water."

In order for an independent candidate to run for President, a candidate has to have their name on the ballot in all 50 states. To do this, there must be a petition to get the potential candidate on the ballot. Each state has a different number of signatures required in order to get the presidential hopeful's name on the ballot. I'm compiling a list of resources for each state and their petition requirements. Right now the information is for 2012 ballots, but read through the qualifications and information.
For example, here are the details for "Non Major Political Party Candidates" from the Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State:
“Candidates of Minor Political Parties, other political parties, or Independents must file by Nominating Petition to get their name placed on the ballot. (M.S.
