CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Ballot Law Commission is preparing to decide whether Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republicans Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are eligible for the state’s presidential primary ballot.

The group meets Tuesday to take up complaints against the candidates.

The challenge against Cruz, a Texas senator, alleges he’s ineligible to run for president because he was born in Canada. Cruz’s mother was born in Delaware, giving him U.S. citizenship upon birth.

The complaint against Sanders, a Vermont senator, says he cannot run in the Democratic primary because he is a longtime Independent. The filing paperwork requires candidates to say they are a registered member of the party from which they’re seeking the nomination.

The challenge against Trump says that his positions and statements do not align with the Republican party.
