Americans Elect announced Monday it has secured ballot access in Nebraska for its alternative bipartisan presidential ticket.

The online political movement so far has qualified for ballot access in 19 states.

Earlier this month, Americans Elect filed petitions containing the names of more than 9,000 Nebraskans in seeking approval from the secretary of state to be placed on Nebraska's general election ballot.

The movement plans to nominate a presidential candidate who would be teamed with a vice presidential nominee from the opposite political party to form a unity ticket.

Americans Elect will choose its presidential nominee through online voting at an Internet convention in June. All registered voters qualify as convention delegates if they sign up.

This will give voters "the opportunity to have more than two choices for president," said Dae Hemphill, Americans Elect campus leader from Hastings College.
