Kanye West is scratching and clawing to keep himself viable for the presidential race, 'cause he just made another last-ditch effort to get on another ballot ... this time in Missouri.
The rep for the Secretary of State there says Ye's camp submitted signatures before the 5 PM deadline Monday -- just in time to be considered for an appearance on the November 3 election. Whether he has enough legit signatures to make the cut though ... still TBD.
Missouri election officials still gotta tally 'em up -- he needs 10,000 signatures from registered voters in the state.
Of course, he just squeaked onto the ballotin his home state of Illinois last week -- something that cost him a pretty penny to do ... upwards of $30k, as we first reported.
