Kanye West is asking fans to sign a petition calling for him to be added to the presidential ballot in South Carolina.
It follows his announcement earlier this month that he intends to run for the White House under the banner of the birthday Party- “because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday”.
He qualified to appear on the ballot in Oklahoma earlier this week, but appears to have missed the cut-off in South Carolina.
Both states had a deadline of Wednesday, according to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
A tweet sent from West’s account said: “If you’re a voter in South Carolina, please sign this petition to place me on the ballot. Sponsored by Ye 2020.”
The petition is being funded by the Kanye 2020 political committee, which filed paperwork with the FEC this week.
