The year 2020 has been nothing short of weird, chaotic, confusing, and unexpected happenings, one of which is Kanye West’s bid for US presidency.

Last July, just five months before the election, West announced his presidential campaign to his 29.5 million Twitter followers, advocating for culture of life, environmental stewardship, the arts, and faith-based organizations.

Today, as election results come in, West, who runs as an independent candidate, has gotten at least—get this—60,000 votes across 12 states, including Idaho, Utah, and Oklahoma. Check the partial tally below.

  • Arkansas: 4,040
  • Colorado: 6,127
  • Idaho: 3,092
  • Iowa: 3,197
  • Kentucky: 6,259
  • Louisiana: 4,894
  • Minnesota: 7,654
  • Mississippi: 3,117
  • Oklahoma: 5,590
  • Tennessee: 10,195
  • Utah: 4,311
  • Vermont: 1,255

In a series of tweets, West has documented his voting experience in a polling precinct in Wyoming, which is apparently his “first time in my life, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me.”

He has also showed his ballot, where he has written his own name in. “KEEP BELIEVING. KANYE 2020,” he tweets.

These votes are obviously not enough to challenge either current president and Republican candidate Donald Trump or former vice president and Democrat candidate Joe Biden. The latter, as of writing, is just six electoral votes shy of winning the presidency.

The 43-year-old musician appears to have conceded in a now-deleted tweet with the word, “WELP,” or a nonstandard spelling of ‘well,’ typically used to express disappointment.

He later reposted a tweet with, “KANYE 2024,” implying that he once again will run for the highest office in the country in the next elections.
