Wisconsin Elections Commission Staff Recommends that Howie Hawkins and Kanye West Be Omitted from Ballot

Ballot Access News

On August 19, the staff of the Wisconsin Elections Commission recommended to the Commission that both Howie Hawkins and Kanye West be omitted from the November ballot as presidential candidates. The Hawkins petition doesn’t have enough valid signatures when the sheets showing the out-of-date postal address for the vice-presidential nominee are omitted.

The West petition was deemed to have been submitted after 5 p.m.

This story has a link to the commission recommendations. The Hawkins petition discussion starts at page 34. On August 20, the Elections Commission will decide whether to omit one or both candidates.
