75. It doesn't affect the qualifications though

 

Only adds an easily obtainable neutral low barrier of entry to appear on the ballot in a specific state. The Constitution doesn't mandate a ballot, or even a popular vote, for President. It's why you don't get every yahoo in the nation who wants to be President on the ballot. It's why some ballots will have Jill Stein on them, and others might not.

The ballot could even have someone who doesn't qualify at all, should the state allow it, the electors would just ignore such a person when casting their votes.
