Kanye West Trying To Take Kentucky & Mississippi


Kanye West is bidding to appear on the ballot for president in Kentucky and Mississippi.

The Kentucky Secretary of State's Office says Kanye submitted petitions to get on the ballot as an independent candidate for prez, but state elections officials say they're still reviewing around 19,000 petition signatures to determine if he qualifies to appear on the ballot.

Kanye filed paperwork to get on the ballot as an independent in Mississippi, but a decision on whether or not his petition is accepted or denied won't be finalized until Tuesday.

Kentucky has 8 electoral votes and Mississippi has 6 electoral votes.

A judge in Arizona, barred him from appearing on the ballot in the swing state.
