Only one presidential candidate submitted a petition in West Virginia this year, Kanye West. The petition was ruled insufficient. West submitted approximately 15,000 signatures but the state says only 6,383 were valid. There were 1,135 signatures that were not counted because election officials could not read the handwriting. The requirement for president this year is 7,144.
The qualified parties in West Virginia are Republican, Democratic, Libertarian, and Green.
