MADISON - Five candidates for president other than Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton have met qualifications to be on the ballot in Wisconsin.

The state Elections Commission is slated to approve the ballot on Tuesday.

The commission says in a memo prepared for the meeting that seven candidates have met the standard to be on the ballot.

They are Clinton, Trump, Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, Jill Stein of the Green Party and Darrell Castle of the Constitution Party.

The other two are Monica Moorehead of the Workers World Party and Rocky Roque De La Fuente of the American Delta Party.

The most recent Marquette University Law School poll two weeks ago showed Clinton leading Trump by 15 points among likely voters in Wisconsin.
