Judge Tosses Lawsuit Over Ohio Voting Machines

A judge has rejected claims raised in an election-eve lawsuit that new software used in voting equipment in some Ohio counties could cause ballots to be altered.

Federal judge Gregory Frost said in a ruling Tuesday that the elections activist who raised the allegation has shown zero chances of succeeding if the case went to trial.

Frost said Bob Fitrakis, a Green Party candidate for Congress, presented only theories and opinions that the software might cause voting night irregularities.
