Kanye West has launched a campaign for the presidency, registered voter
Rapper Kanye West has launched a campaign for the presidency with the fact that he registered in the voter lists. West posted on his Twitter a video with a length of about one and a half minutes, which shows his visit to the registration office.
"I want to show everyone how easy it is to vote," says West. He talks about the content of the questionnaire for registration: name, date of birth, driver's license, which are used in the United States as the standard ID, gender, phone, address, data about political affiliation.
In addition you need to sign the oath of voter. Also shows the West's conversation with an employee in the office, which the musician asks why so many convicts are unable to vote.
"Many people think they cannot vote because they are convicted criminals, but they can demand their rights back," says West.
The clerk replied that in order to change this, need to enact appropriate legislation at the level of individual States.
West previously announced his intention to run for U.S. President. Traditionally, the real chances of being elected have only candidates of the two leading parties - Republican and Democratic - this year they are already defined, they were Donald trump and Joe Biden. There are few cases when third party candidates or independents have gained significant number of votes. At the moment, the last person who is turned - businessman Ross Perot, who ran in 1992 and got 19% of the votes. However, the Pen did not win a single state and therefore received no electoral votes that elect a President in a two-stage voting system.
