According to USA Today, West received 60,000 votes, with some reports claiming he received at least 2 percent of the votes nationwide.
West was late placing his presidential bid and then struggled to obtain ballot access in many states, including his current state of Wyoming.
Prior to his tweet, West posted on Twitter, writing in his name on the ballot and voting for himself and his running mate, Michele Tidball.

Maybe now West can focus on his clothing line and producing music, but we are guessing that it will just be more of the same! See you in 2024 Yeezy.
