BATON ROUGE, La.- Four more Republican presidential candidates have signed up for Louisiana's March 24 primary ballot.

The campaigns of U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer submitted paperwork to the secretary of state's office on Thursday.

Qualifying for the presidential primary continues until Friday.

The election is closed primary, so Democrats can vote only for Democrats and Republicans can vote only for GOP candidates.

Democratic President Barack Obama's campaign signed up on Wednesday, along with most major GOP candidates, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
