Al Jaeger submitted his petitions today to have his name appear on the November 6 General Election ballot for re-election as North Dakota’s Secretary of State.  The 69 petitions contained the signatures of over 1,300 voters from throughout the state.  

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support that I have received since I received the Republican Party’s letter of support in June,” Jaeger said. “Whether it is safeguarding our elections or advancing the use of technology to make interacting with government easier, I am proud of what my office has accomplished.”

As Secretary of State, Jaeger has made safeguarding North Dakota elections a top priority. During the 2017 legislative session, the legislature passed a voter ID bill, which his office helped draft.  In addition, during four consecutive election cycles the Pew Charitable Trusts ranked North Dakota the top state in the nation for its management of elections and information provided to voters on the Vote.ND.Gov website.

“The North Dakota Republican Party is proud to support Al Jaeger as our candidate for Secretary of State in this November’s election,” North Dakota Republican Party Chairman Rick Berg said. “Al is a proven leader and an incredible public servant for our state.”

Because Jaeger was not on the June Primary ballot, he will be listed as an independent nominee on the General Election ballot in November.
