Backer of proposed North Dakota ballot measure: "we should be able to see how our election went"

(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota voters could soon have a chance to vote on a measure that backers say will improve election integrity and security. 

"With the paper ballots, at least there is something that is verifiable. Right now we can't see any of that stuff. The ballots are all locked away. We can't see information on the cast votes. Everything is just taken away from the people. We should be able to see how our election went," said Lydia Geselle.

Geselle is the chair of the committee sponsoring the "Election Integrity Act Initiative". 

The measure, which they've submitted to the secretary of state for review, would require the state only use voting systems that only use paper ballots, among other changes. 

Assuming the proposed measure is approved by the secretary of state, petitioners would need to collect more than 31,000 signatures by February 12th to get the measure on the ballot.
