Mandan man announces run for ND Secretary of State
NORTH DAKOTA -- A Mandan man will challenge North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger in the GOP primary.
Jaeger has held the office since 1993.
Will Gardner is a realtor and business partner for a company that provides law firms with tech tools to conduct jury research.
He says the Secretary of State's Office hasn't kept up with the times when it comes to technology.
Gardner points to businesses registering with the state via fax machine as an example.
He says he's the best qualified to fix the problem.
"We need a leader in the office that is actually going to push it across the finish line and someone who understands software projects and the issues of software projects," said Will Gardner, ND Secretary of State Candidate.
Gardner also says he's running to push the state to creating a voter registration program.
North Dakota is the only state that does not have voter registration.
