Evan McMullin will be on the presidential ballot in South Carolina, making it the 9th state so far on which the independent candidate will appear in November's election, the campaign announced Wednesday.

"I'm honored to be the Independence Party of South Carolina's presidential candidate. I look forward to bringing our message of greater opportunity, security, and a better choice to the people of South Carolina," McMullin said in a statement.

In addition to the Palmetto State, McMullin, in four weeks since announcing his candidacy, has also made the ballots of eight other states:

  1. Utah
  2. Iowa
  3. Colorado
  4. Louisiana
  5. Arkansas
  6. Idaho
  7. Virginia
  8. Minnesota

"Like Americans everywhere, many of us in South Carolina have been watching this year's presidential process with growing anger and disappointment. If this country has come to the point where the choices we are offered are either Trump or Clinton, then there is something very wrong with our process," Wayne Griffin, chair of the South Carolina Independence Party, said in the statement.

"The South Carolina Independence Party is proud to endorse him and to give him our ballot line this November," Griffin said.
