North Dakota has more eligible voters this general election

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger says he expects voter turnout in the state for this year's presidential election to be similar to what it was four years ago and eight years ago — about 64 or 65 percent of eligible voters.

Jaeger says there are about 36,000 more people of voting age in the state now than there were in 2008, but he says whether that raises the turnout percentage remains to be seen.

Jaeger says the number of eligible voters is up because the state's population is up — a reflection of North Dakota's good economy.
