Kanye West won’t be able to have fans vote for him in Illinois when it comes to the November Presidential election, as he has officially been voted off of the state’s ballot.

According to NBC News Chicago, the rapper, who is a native of the city, was kicked off the ballot after the Illinois State Board of Elections voted unanimously, 8 to 0, to remove him after he failed to submit enough qualifying signatures petitioning for him. He submitted 412 pages of sheets in July to appear as an independent, but at least 2,500 valid signatures of registered voters in the state of Illinois are required, making West 1,300 signatures short.

He was also removed from the Wisconsin Election Commission's ballots in a 5-1 vote after he missed the deadline to submit the required 2,000 signatures in that state.

The setbacks come after an objection was filed against him in New Jersey in July, claiming that hundreds of names on his nominating petition are those of people who are not registered to vote, did not provide their addresses, or did not provide other pieces of information. His campaign later withdrew their petition there. He also was recently revealed to only have 2% support nationwide for his bid, compared to a 40% support for Donald Trump and 49% for Joe Biden.

He has also withdrawn or had petitions dismissed in Montana, Wisconsin and Ohio, and missed the deadline in several others.

Though his campaign has faced several setbacks though, West could see his fans in some states casting votes for him come November, as he will be listed in Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Utah and Vermont. While his ability to appear on the ballot is still pending verification in other states, as it stands, he doesn’t have a chance to win the Presidency because he can’t possibly accumulate enough electoral votes (270) to beat both Trump and Biden.
