Don't see how such laws could be enforced in that way for two reasons:

1-There is no legal precedent or standard for a state to judge the partisan affiliation of someone who is not a registered voter in the respective state.

2-The candidates aren't actually being voted for, just electors, who can theoretically vote for whoever they want. A decoy ticket could simply be nominated.

Still that ticket is the very definition of boring and lame.

besides, didn't Kerry ask McCain to be his VP in '04?

If you believe Kerry ever seriously considered that I've got a sweet ice-free port in Minneapolis to sell you.
