Judge OKs electronic voting machines for May primary

Judge OKs electronic voting machines for May primary Allegheny County's primary election will go on May 16 with the new electronic voting machines bought less than a month ago.

U.S. District Judge Gary L. Lancaster issued his ruling this morning after three days of testimony and argument on a preliminary injunction requested as part of a lawsuit filed in federal court.

The suit was brought by seven Allegheny County residents and the People for the American Way. In it, they claimed that the county's newly purchased electronic voting machines are not accessible to people with certain types of disabilities and that there is not enough time to educate local poll workers and voters about the machines.

Several witnesses said the county's 11th hour switch to the new iVotronic machines would likely result in 'chaos.'
Could be a train wreck.
