In yet another sign of North Dakota’s hotly contested U.S. Senate race, the Secretary of State’s Office is fielding questions from party officials about the process for having poll challengers and poll checkers at voting sites.
North Dakota's secretary of state says he's not putting two citizen initiatives on the November ballot because of petition fraud. Al Jaeger said Tuesday said he's disqualifying a proposal for a state conservation fund, and a measure to make marijuana use legal for medical treatment.
Secretary of State Al Jaeger defended his decision to reduce his agency’s public office hours during an appearance before state lawmakers Tuesday.

Petitions submitted to state officials Tuesday night to force a referendum on UND’s Fighting Sioux nickname contain approximately 16,770 signatures, Secretary of State Al Jaeger said Thursday.

Jaeger has demonstrated again and again his attention to detail; his strict adherence to state law regarding ballot measures; his stewardship of public money; his ability to work with county election officials to modernize voting. He’s earned another four-year term.
I know Jaeger to be an honest, hard-working, dedicated and very capable public servant.
He does not politicize the office and does not use the appropriated budget to promote himself.
Jaeger has earned the public's confidence for re-election.
North Dakota’s secretary of state race has generated more buzz than usual this election season, something incumbent Republican Al Jaeger attributes to a “quite aggressive” campaign by Democratic challenger Corey Mock.
