DENVER (KDVR) – Kanye West has filed paperwork to be on the ballot when Colorado residents are voting for president this fall.

The hip-hop artist announced his plans to run earlier this summer and held several campaign events, but also had mixed signals about pulling out of the race.

West’s candidacy is not affiliated with any party, and according to the filing obtained by FOX31 his vice presidential running mate is Michelle Tidball.

According to Forbes, Tidball is a self-described “biblical life coach” who has said in the past that she does not watch the news.

West’s campaign paperwork still needs to be confirmed by the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office before his name will officially be added to the ballot.
