Last week the rapper managed to register as an independent candidate in the state of Oklahoma.

American rapper Kanye West has been unable to register as a presidential candidate in South Carolina and qualify to be on that state’s ballot. According to the spokesman of the State Electoral Commission, Chris Whitmire, neither West nor any representative of his campaign delivered the 10,000 signatures necessary to appear as an aspiring candidate on Monday, as required by state legislation.

“There was no request,” Whitmire said, detailing that emails were even sent to a West campaign address, but there was no response as of Monday.

The artist also did not meet the deadline to appear on other states’ ballots, and it was unclear if he wanted or was able to collect enough signatures for that. Last week qualified to appear on the Oklahoma presidential ballot, the first state in which you met the requirements before the deadline.

  • West, who is married to television star Kim Kardashian West, ad his candidacy on July 4, stating that he is no longer sympathetic to President Donald Trump.
  • This Sunday he celebrated his first rally campaign in North Charleston (South Carolina) in which he spoke, among other things, about abortion. She confessed that her own father wanted to abort her and argued that financial supports for mothers could help deter this practice, which, in turn, should be legal.
