Writ of Mandamus allows client to be placed on general election ballot

Due to a candidate withdrawing from the general election ballot, our client registered and gained her party’s nomination to be the substitute on the ballot. However, the State Election Commission refused the petition. We secured a Writ of Mandamus from the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals compelling the West Virginia Secretary of State and State Election Commission to place our client on the ballot as a candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates on the general election ballot.
