Kanye West has reportedly filed to appear on the New Jersey ballot in November’s presidential election in his latest bid for the White House.

The 43-year-old rapper submitted petitions with 1,327 signatures to get on the ballot for New Jersey, surpassing the 800 required signatures before the deadline day in order to appear as an independent candidate in the Garden State, TMZ reported.

West 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.

The father of four will officially be on the presidential ballot in Oklahoma after filing the proper paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to make the run.

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.

During their intense conversation inside a vehicle, Kim broke down in tears following Kanye’s political campaign rally and Twitter meltdown, where he disclosed how he encouraged her to abort their first child and revealed how he had been planning divorce to her over a meeting she had with rapper Meek Mill at a hotel for prison reform.

Kanye West announced he was running for president in a July 4 tweet and was endorsed by Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk.
