Kanye West Votes for Himself in Presidential Election
Kanye West voted for the first time in his life.
The rapper hit the polls on Tuesday in Park County, Wyoming, where he cast a vote for himself in the presidential election. Taking to Twitter, Ye shared video of his ballot where he wrote in his name above his running mate Michelle Tidball, a preacher from Wyoming.
“God is so good,” he tweeted. “Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me.”
God is so good 😊 Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me. 🇺🇸 🕊

He also shared another clip of him entering his ballot into the machine. “The first vote of my life We are here to serve We pray for every servant leader in the world,” he captioned it.
Finally, he posted a picture of himself wearing a blue hoodie and mask with an “I Voted” sticker on his chest.
Kanye previously said he was running under the Birthday Party. “Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday,” he told Forbes.
While a 2020 win is unlikely, he may try again in four years. During his recent interview with “The Joe Rogan Experience,” he said that he would even consider running for California Governor if it helped him on his path to the presidency.
It’s unclear if Kim Kardashian voted for her husband, but she has been liking posts that support Joe Biden and Kamala Harris including one from Kid Cudi that reads “Vote for Biden if you a real one.” She also retweeted Harris’ tweet with the number for the Democratic voter hotline.
