MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Elections Commision confirmed on Tuesday that that rapper Kanye West's presidential campaign dropped off signature papers at Wisconsin Elections Commision building in Madison. It's an effort to be on the November Ballot. They can be challenged.

According to the commission, in order to be on the certified ballot he must successfully file 2,000 valid "signatures of Wisconsin electors on nomination papers, as well as a Declaration of Candidacy form for both the presidential and vice-presidential candidates."

The Elections Commission in Wisconsin will now review all paperwork to ensure that he has met the criteria.

Footage from our Milwaukee affiliate WISN-TV showed a campaign rep walking into the building just after 5:00 p.m.

It's not known yet how many signatures he has.

Earlier this morning, West withdrew his petition to get on the ballot in New Jersey after a challenge according to the AP. West's signatures had been challenged and faced scrutiny after appearing to have signatures with similar hand writing and incomplete addresses.
