FARGO INFORUM: "ND secretary of state, BCI investigate Foster County election"

The Fargo Forum posted an article about our local Foster County Primary Election.  It was basically a link to the original report by David Luessen from the Jamestown Sun published on July 11, 2014.  

When the ND Secretary of State comments on a questionable election issue, it becomes more than local news. A letter from Secretary of State Al Jaeger to Foster County Auditor Teresa Risovi stated: "In order to revisit the alleged situation described above, the Canvassing Board must be reconvened according to N.D.C.C. 16.1-15-17 (enclosed). Then, if necessary, adjust the vote totals and resubmit a new certification to the State Canvassing Board."  Several newspapers are following this issue now, especially since the ND Bureau of Criminal Investigation was called in last week to investigate the issue surrounding the absentee ballots.

This picture was taken after the Primary Election at the Foster County Fair when Auditor Risovi took vacation days from her job to campaign for Foster County Auditor which comes up for a vote in the November election. (The Primary vote was Casey Cables/908 over Teresa Risovi/459.)
