Kanye West’s bid for United States president has officially come to an end after the rapper accrued just 60,000 votes across 12 states.
Overall, West’s votes in the 12 states where he was named on the ballot totalled 60,761, according to the Associated Press.
The 43-year-old managed to gather the most votes in Tennessee, where he received 10,216 votes – 0.3 per cent of the state’s total. The rapper’s second-highest turnout was in Minnesota, where he cinched 7,789 votes, followed by Kentucky, Colorado and Oklahoma.
West’s results came after he tweeted his support for himself, revealing that he had voted for president for the first time in his life in Wyoming, where he wrote in his own name on the ballot.
“God is so good,” West tweeted. “Today I am voting for the first time in my life for President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust… me.”
Overall, West spent nearly $5.9m on his presidential bid, according to a fundraising report filed with the Federal Election Campaign, with the rapper holding one rally in South Carolina, launching a campaign website and merchandise and releasing numerous campaign ads, as well as two full-page ads in The New York Times, Rolling Stone reports.
As of now, votes are still being counted to determine whether President Trump or Joe Biden will be the next US president.
