OKLAHOMA CITY — Kanye West has qualified for at least one state presidential ballot.
The Oklahoma State Election Board announced Wednesday that the rapper qualified for the state’s general election in November as an independent.
Wednesday was the deadline for independents and unrecognized party candidates to file in Oklahoma.
“This afternoon, we received a properly executed statement of candidacy for Kanye West, along with the appropriate filing fee in lieu of petition,” Oklahoma State Election Board officials told KOCO. “Kanye West is now qualified as an independent candidate for president of the United States in Oklahoma and will appear on the general election ballot.”
Rumors of the singer running for president have circulated before, Billboard reported.
