Kanye West Asks for Signatures to Get on South Carolina Presidential Ballot

Kanye West is petitioning to get his name on the presidential ballot in South Carolina, soon after he officially filed to be a candidate in Oklahoma.

“Hi guys please sign up to put me on the ballot in South Carolina at any of these locations,” he wrote on Twitter on Saturday (July 18). “You can also sign up at the website.”

The message lists eight locations — Chuck Town Bar and Grill, Adams Run Civic Center, Blue Note Bistro, Ravenel Trucking, Tia Banquet Hall, Scotts Grand Banquet Hall, Inspired by Annette Events and Baconsbridge Worship Center — and links to kanye2020.country, where residents can pledge that they are “signing to put Kanye West on the ballot in South Carolina” by signing a “Ye ’20” form with their personal information.

He first posted the petition to be placed on the South Carolina ballot with a tweet on Friday night.

West is listed as a candidate with a Cody, Wyo., address and BDY (Birthday) Party as his affiliated third party in an FEC Form 1 filed under Kanye 2020.

He has also filed an FEC Form 2 (Statement of Candidacy), which is filed once an individual has raised or spent more then $5,000 in campaign activity, triggering candidacy status under federal campaign finance law.

Although West missed the deadline to qualify for the 2020 general election ballot in several states, earlier this week he did meet the deadline for a spot on Oklahoma’s ballot and paid the $35,000 filing.

The rapper and presidential hopeful declared his plans to run for president in 2020 with a tweet on the Fourth of July, when he announced, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.”
