JQuery Validation Problem

NuGet shows that the JQuery Validation in installed and I created the JQuery Validation in the View the way I thought it needed to be done but I cannot get it to run. All of the other fields have Validations so I only need to ensure that the user retypes the password correctly in the field with <input id="txtCheckPassword" type="text" />

Does anyone see the reason why the JQuery Validation will not run? (File attached below)

Here is the code in readable format, wrapped in [ code]...[ /code] as we prefer it

@model RescueFormsAdministration.Models.CreateAccountViewModel

@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Create";
}

<h2>Create</h2>
<script>
$.validator.setDefaults({
	submitHandler: function() { alert("submitted!"); }
});

$().ready(function() {
	// validate signup form on keyup and submit
    $("#CreateAccount").validate({
		rules: {
		    txtCheckPassword: {
				required: true,
				minlength: 5,
				equalTo: "#DataModel_Password"
			}
		},
		messages: {
			txtCheckPassword: {
				required: "Please provide a password",
				minlength: "Your password must be at least 5 characters long",
				equalTo: "Please enter the same password as above"
			}
		}
	});
});
</script>

@using (Html.BeginForm("Create", "Accounts", FormMethod.Post, new { id = "CreateAccount" }))
{
    @Html.ValidationSummary(true)
    <fieldset>
        <legend>Account</legend>

		@Html.Partial("_CreateOrEdit", Model)

        <table style="width:100%">
