More than 10K Tennesseans voted for Kanye West in 2020 election

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) —Though Donald Trump won Tennessee and gained an additional 11 electoral votes Tuesday night, results from The Associated Press show more than 10,000 Tennesseans voted for third party candidate Kanye West.

Tennessee's general presidential results show 10,188 voters marked West on their ballots in the 2020 election. 2,590 of those votes came from the metro Nashville area.

Earlier this month, West tweeted faux election results showing he was ahead of President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the presidential race.

The numbers West shared, supposedly showing early results out of Kentucky, were mock election data The Associated Press provides to customers as part of routine testing ahead of elections. Testing data is randomly generated and not based on any predetermined scenarios.

TN counties with high West votes:

Davidson County: 2,590

Dickson County: 134

Hamilton County: 393

Knox County: 466

Rutherford County: 439

Shelby County: 1,598

Williamson County: 236

Wilson County: 446

Note: These numbers were updated at 12 a.m. Wednesday. FOX 17 News will update this story as more votes are counted.
