Various News Stories Say Kanye West is Spending up to $500,000 on his Arizona Petition

Ballot Access News

Various news stories say Kanye West is spending up to $500,000 of his own money to complete the Arizona independent presidential petition. It requires 37,769 signatures by September 4. He reportedly has 100 paid circulators and they are each receiving $8 per signature.

No Arizona independent presidential petition has succeeded since 2008, when Ralph Nader did it. Assuming West submits a very large number of signatures, Arizona election officials will be hard-pressed to check the petition in time for ballot-printing deadlines.

The only ballot-qualified parties in Arizona are Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian.
