Mock criticizes Jaeger over low voter turnout

BISMARCK – Republican Secretary of State Al Jaeger should take a more prominent role in encouraging people to vote, his Democratic challenger said Thursday, citing chronically low turnout for the state’s June elections.

“If (Jaeger) sees his job as just administering the election and not promoting it, I guess that’s his job description,” Corey Mock said. “I see it as more than that.”

The turnout ranks as the third-worst in North Dakota’s last 10 June elections, according to voting statistics.
