Jaeger Says He's Standing By "Easy as Pie" Campaign

Posted: Updated:

The Secretary of State says the new voter ID law saw results in the election last month.

The first part of the "Easy as Pie" campaign was completed prior to last month's election and requires people to show identification at the polls.

Secretary of State AL Jaeger says the law was a success and he is sticking by it.

"All of the options we have now are virtually available to everyone. It's just a matter doing it. Again, it's not difficult it's something people need to do," says Jaeger. 

His opponent April Fairfield says the new "Easy as Pie" campaign isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Earlier this week she accused lawmakers of passing the law in response to Rick Berg losing the 2012 U.S. Senate race. The new law no longer accepts affidavits if someone doesn't have ID. Jaeger says there had been concerns with the affidavits prior to that election.
