Kanye has made it onto the ballot in states such as Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Utah and Vermont. However, he’s been kept off the ballot in multiple states as well. Kanye was most recently kept off the ballot in Montana after he failed to obtain 5,000 valid signatures.
Montana’s secretary of state’s office claimed only 3,972 of the 8,800 signatures obtained by Kanye were valid, the New York Post reported.
The “Jesus Is King” rapper also was kept off the ballot in Illinois, Ohio and New Jersey.
Kanye first announced he was running for president on the 4th of July.
