(Bismarck, ND) -- Past statewide candidate Charles Tuttle is making an independent bid for North Dakota Secretary of State.
Tuttle said Wednesday that he had submitted just over the one-thousand signatures needed to make the November ballot.
If the signatures are certified, Tuttle will face Republican Michael Howe and Democrat Jeffrey Powell. Current Secretary of State Al Jaeger is retiring at the end of the year.
Tuttle says he's focused on election integrity and responding to how the state handles oil tax revenue.
