According to reports, Kanye West‘s name will be taken off the ballot in his home state of Illinois. The news comes after it was revealed that more than half of the signature Kanye’s team submitted were deemed invalid.

A review of the legitimacy of Kanye’s petition to be on the ballot revealed that 1,928 signatures out of the 3,128 were flagged as invalid. A state requires more than 2,500 signatures to have a name officially added to the ballot.

Although it is unclear why the names were deemed invalid, some reasons could include illegible names, non-registered voters, or people providing fakes names or addresses. As Kanye West’s name will be removed from the ballot come August 21, White House correspondent and CNN political analyst, April Ryan, now notes that the controversial figure could be subject to an election-fraud investigation.

In case you missed it, Kanye recently shared inspirations, works in progress and unreleased YEEZY footwear designs on Twitter.
