Kentuckians will likely find Kanye West on the ballot for president this November. Earlier this year, the rapper turned possible politician announced his newest project would be a bid for the White House.

On Friday, West's campaign dropped off a petition with 19,000 signatures from registered Kentucky voters to the state's election board. Only 5,000 are needed to appear on the ballot and if there are enough valid signatures, West would be one of six candidates Kentuckians could vote for.

West would appear as an Independent on the Kentucky ballot. He will not appear on ballots in Indiana or Illinois but he has been approved for ballots in five other states.
