Great news from AG Mark Herring’s office:
The Supreme Court of Virginia has denied Kanye West’s appeal, which means he will not be included on Virginia’s ballots in the election this fall.
The Court concluded their decision by saying, “[h]aving considered the record and arguments presented, we find it is not ‘appropriate under the circumstances of th[is] case’ to alter the temporary injunction.”
Below is a statement [from] Attorney General Herring about today’s ruling:
“I’m pleased the Supreme Court of Virginia agreed with me today and denied Kanye West’s appeal. This case could have thrown the election into chaos, drastically changing the ballot and potentially disenfranchising tens of thousands of Virginians during an election that has brought challenges like none we have ever dealt with before. Today’s ruling will keep things on track and help to ensure that every single vote is counted in November.”
