North Dakota state auditor: "exceptionally unlikely" state elections will be influenced by fraud

(Fargo, ND) -- The North Dakota State Auditor says the state's election systems are "incredibly secure" following an independent review. 

"Yes, we do have a security contractor that we work with. Every two years we are looking at security assessments for the State of North Dakota and the university system, and this year we asked them specifically to evaluate our election processes for any vulnerabilities," said Josh Gallion.  

Gallion has released the review of the state's election system, and says it's "exceptionally" unlikely the results of the upcoming election could be influenced by fraud. His office identified what they call six areas of vulnerability, but concluded fraud related to those issues is "exceptionally unlikely" to occur.
