ND Supreme Court bars election reform measure from ballot

A sweeping election reform measure recently approved for the general election ballot will not go before voters this November after an intervention by the North Dakota Supreme Court. In an expedited decision announced Tuesday, Aug. 25, the court unanimously barred Secretary of State Al Jaeger from including Measure 3 on the November ballot. The measure has become a point of partisan division this summer as opponents came forward with complaints, echoed by Jaeger himself, that the measure used misleading tactics to hoodwink signers. When Jaeger announced earlier this month that Measure 3 had earned the signatures to qualify for the November ballot, the measure drew a legal challenge almost immediately. Adams Willis, InForum.
