The outburst came after Isaac Okoreeh Baah was told his name would be listed Okoreeh-Baah on the ballot because that's how he signed various legal documents.
Baah, who is from Ghana, said Okoreeh is his middle name and not part of his last name.
After the commission ruled against him, Baah started yelling at the board members.
Members of his family joined in the shouting, saying, "You are not going to tell me my name."
Security had to be called, at which time the family left.
