TRENTON, KOMPAS.com — Kanye West faced a roadblock after his petition to appear on New Jersey’s ballot as a presidential candidate failed to pass legal muster.

The petition had incomplete signatures in support of Kanye West.

In some cases, the signatures were written with very similar handwriting according to a formal complaint filed with the state of New Jersey on Wednesday.

Scott Salmon is a registered Democrat and Election Law Attorney who filed the objection with New Jersey’s Division of Elections.

Scott reviewed more than 1,300 signatures that Kanye West had submitted.

New Jersey requires presidential candidates to get 800 signatures to appear on the ballot, but Salmon said in an interview that he counted more than 600 that were in some way defective.

“Mr. West’s petitions do not contain the valid signatures of 800 qualified voters and should have been rejected by the Division,” Salmon wrote in the complaint.

The petition shows that a number of signatures appear nearly identical, including lower-case i's dotted with a small circle. Some signatures lack complete addresses.
