If you’re a regular reader of ND xPlains, you know we’ve been following the Secretary of State’s process in deciding whether or not they would turn over voter information to President Trump’s voting commission. Following their “re-evaluation” on August 4th, we were the only publication to seek additional information and follow up. I’m pleased to announce moments ago the Secretary of State’s office sent me their official response to the commission’s request. They have declined to turn over voter information.
You can read Secretary of State Al Jaeger’s official response below. Thank you for contacting the SOS office and voicing your concerns. After weeks of your pressure, Jaeger finally made the right decision.
