Abstract: The classical Ballot problem that counts the number of ways of walking from the origin and staying within the wedge $ {x_1} \geq {x_2} \geq \cdots \geq {x_n}$ (which is a Weyl chamber for the symmetric group), using positive unit steps, is generalized to general Weyl groups and general sets of steps.
