According to TMZ, the rapper, 43, added his newly confirmed vice presidential running mate Michelle Tidball to the petition as he submitted the 1,000 required signatures before the noon deadline on Monday August 3.
A spokesperson for the Arkansas Secretary of State confirmed to TMZ that Kanye’s campaign turned in the needed 1,000 signatures to qualify for the November election ballot.
The forms were reportedly turned in just 15 minutes before the Arkansas’ noon deadline.
