(KUTV) – Kanye West is officially on the presidential ballot in Utah.

Vote Utah tweeted Monday that Brock Pierce, Joe Mchugh and Kanye West have all filed and qualified as unaffiliated candidates in the race to be the nation's next president.

Monday was the last day candidates could file to appear on November's ballot in Utah.

The hip-hop artist and rapper, and former supporter of President Donald Trump, announced his run for president on July 4.

In a tweet, West said: "We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION."

His campaign filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on July 15.

Earlier this month, West and his running mate Michelle Tidball listed themselves as candidates of the BDY, The Birthday Party, in Wisconsin. That, however, has been challenged.

West also submitted signatures in Arkansas to appear on that state's ballot this fall, and he also has submitted paperwork to appear on the ballot in Oklahoma. West withdrew his petition to appear as a presidential candidate on New Jersey's ballot.
