– Kanye West Submit Petition To Appear On New Jersey presidential ballot
Billionaire Rapper, Kanye West has reportedly filed a petition to have his name appear on New Jersey presidential ballot box.
The 43-year-old rapper surpassed the required 800 signatures needed before the deadline day in order to appear as an independent candidate in the State by submitting petitions with 1,327 signatures.
Kanye West who recently just completed the procedure to have his name on the ballot box in Oklahoma has also submitted documents to get on the ballot in Missouri, where 10,000 signatures are required and it costs more than $30,000 to apply.
He is also planning to do the same in New York and will need 30,000 signatures by Thursday’s deadline in the Empire State. On the same day of his New Jersey application, West was pictured with wife Kim Kardashian West after the reality star flew down to Wyoming for marriage crisis talks with the troubled rapper over his recent behavior on social media.
Monday was the deadline for independent presidential candidates to file petitions to get on the state’s November ballot, and Friday is the deadline to challenge those nominating petitions.
One of the other independent candidates who filed to appear on New Jersey’s ballot is Don Blankenship, a former coal executive who ran for the U.S. Senate in West Virginia in 2018.
Meanwhile, a Democratic lawyer is challenging the signatures of Kanye West’s presidential petition, which threatens his position as an independent candidate on the New Jersey ballot.
Scott Salmon, who ran for Congress in 2018, said that although West had submitted at least 500 signatures to go to the ballot, these signatures were “extremely bad, almost to an extent. “insulting.”
“The signatures do not contain the required information and many looks like the handwriting,” he said.
