Concerned Voters of Virginia Announce Intent to File Lawsuit Challenging Kanye West’s Legitimacy on the Virginia Ballot

Richmond, VA – Following the premature announcement from the Department of Elections that Kanye West had qualified for the Virginia ballot, a group of concerned Virginia voters and citizens announced they plan to file litigation to prevent the certification of West’s candidacy.

The group includes Mr. Matthan Wilson, who was listed as an elector on West’s paperwork but was unaware of his status as an elector and does not intend to fill that role for West’s campaign. Mr. Wilson added the following statement:

“Legitimate candidates for President and Vice President would have no difficulty locating 13 Virginians willing to serve as their electors. Instead, Mr. West or those working on his behalf resorted to deception to falsely represent that he had obtained the support of the requisite number of electors. This undercuts the democratic process to be tricked into doing something you would not do freely.  Virginia law bars such conduct, and Mr. West’s candidacy should not have been certified. That will be the basis of the litigation.”

The group of voters who plan to file litigation include:

  • Matthan Wilson
  • Mamie Locke
  • Anton Bell
  • Lance Jones
  • Claudya Cohen
  • Dee Minor
  • Gaylene Kanoyton 
  • Cyliene Montgomery 
  • Taikein Cooper
  • Paul Berry
  • Carole Lieber
