According to the Chicago Tribune, almost 2,000 of the 3,218 signatures that he submitted to the state election board were not valid. The state requires 2,500 signatures to get on the ballot, and 1,928 of the signatures that West submitted were labeled invalid. The Tribune said that the signatures can be validated with arguments and proof that they are legitimate.
This isn’t the first time that West’s campaign ran into issues with people pledging their votes. As previously reported, six of the 18 people that West listed to vote for him in the Electoral College should he receive votes in Ohio were all listed at the same address in Cleveland.
