Sadly, Kanye West is not in the best mood as his first presidential bid appears to be at an end in the ongoing US presidential election.

"WELP," West wrote on twitter, posting a picture of himself in profile against an election map. "KANYE 2024," he continued, seemingly suggesting a future presidential run.

He may not have racked up the votes on election night, but at least one person voted for West: the rapper himself.

The rapper, 43, took to his social media handle, Twitter on Election Day to share that he not only voted for president for the first time ever, but also that he cast his ballot for himself.

"God is so good," West wrote Tuesday morning. "Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it's for someone I truly trust…me."

The rapper followed up the tweet with a video of himself holding a ballot paper with his name written in for president and Michelle Tidball, a preacher and life coach according to BaLLOTPEDIA   written in for vice president.

"KEEP BELIEVING KANYE 2020," he wrote along with the video. "Thank you Jesus Christ"

West also shared a video on his Twitter page of himself sliding his ballot into a voting machine, making his vote official.

"The first vote of my life," he wrote. "We are here to serve. We pray for every servant leader in the world." Later, West also tweeted a photo of himself wearing a blue hoodie, black face mask and an "I Voted" sticker.

West's wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, shared that she voted as well. However, unlike her husband, Kardashian didn't go into detail about whom she cast her ballot for.

"I VOTED!!!! Did you?!?!" the 40-year-old  tweeted, along with a black-and-white photo of herself with an "I Voted" sticker. "If you are in line when the hours of operation close at the polls, they are required to stay open and allow you to vote, so do not get out of line."

It's safe to say at least 60,000 Americans voted for West, who ran as an Independent. While a few states were still under 80% reported as of this writing, our count puts him at 59,781 total votes. Thus, it's a pretty good guess he'll go over 60,000 by the time all states are fully counted.
Kanye's biggest haul was in Tennessee, where he garnered 10,188 votes. While the rap mogul did rank 4th in some state races, his percentage of the vote was never over .04%.
