A Texas presidential candidate named Literally Anybody Else

A Texas man hopes a legal name change and long-term presidential bid will drive home his argument that some voters want “literally anyone other than former President Trump or President Biden to run another term in the White House.

A teacher and Army veteran from North Richland Hills, Texas – formerly named Dustin Ebey – told WFAA88 that he legally changed its name to “Literally anyone else” and is running for president under that name. He told the outlet he hoped the name would send a message.

“It’s not about me, it’s not about ‘Literally anyone else,’ especially since it’s an idea. We can do better with 300 million people in the presidency,” he told WFAA88.

Else showed the point of sale her apparent new driver’s license, which had her name listed as “Literally Anyone Else.” Federal Election Commission records show he filed with the commission under the name.

He stressed that he “had no illusions” and that he understood that it would be very difficult to collect enough signatures to appear on the ballot.

“It will be very difficult to achieve, but it is not impossible. My hope is to have Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and then literally anyone else right below that,” he said. “I really want there to be an outlet for people like me who are so fed up with this constant power grab between two parties that brings no benefit to ordinary people.”

Under Texas law, an application to be placed on the ballot as an independent candidate must be submitted with a petition, which requires 113,151 signatures from registered voters who did not vote in either party’s presidential primary in Texas.

Understanding that this is a difficult task, Else asks Texas residents to register her name as a write-in candidate. Applicants registered in the Lone Star State must only register with the state and have no signature requirement.

“Write that name down — we don’t really have a ‘neither’ option on the ballot, and this serves that purpose,” Else said.
