Kanye West is serious in his bid for the White House and his campaign is beefing up its staff.
Kanye's hired a team of political advisors and people with experience to help navigate how to get on the ballot in more states.
Kanye's advisors are hiring people to work on the campaign and recruiting volunteers, they've contracted third-party organizations to assist with spreading campaign awareness.
The main objective right now is gathering enough signatures to get Kanye on the ballot.
Volunteers are canvassing for signatures in West Virginia and hitting spots like restaurants, shopping malls, and campaign staffers are working in New York to qualify for the ballot. In West Virginia, Kanye needs 7,144 signatures to get on the ballot.
Kanye's already submitted paperwork to get on the ballot in New Jersey, Oklahoma, Illinois and Missouri.
