Rapper

is seeking to get on the Wyoming presidential ballot as an independent candidate, the Wyoming secretary of State's office confirmed to The Hill on Wednesday. 

A spokesman for the office had told the

 that representatives for West filed paperwork on Monday in an effort to get his name on the November ballot in the state.

Wyoming, the rapper’s current home state, is one of several states where West is trying to make the presidential ballot in a rushed effort. Other states have challenged or rejected the required signatures he filed.

County clerks across Wyoming said they received reports on Tuesday that the rapper’s signature collectors violated state law by gathering signatures too close to polling stations during the state’s primary election, according to the Star Tribune.

Wyoming law prohibits electioneering or gathering signatures within 100 yards of a polling station.
