Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted issued a statement on Election Day supporting a judge’s decision to deny a Green Party candidate’s request to block the use of certain voting software.
Husted wrote: “This suit was completely baseless and caused unnecessary concern and confusion. All Ohioans’ votes are tabulated at the local level and separately reported to the Secretary of State on Election Night through a secure connection. The system is not only safe, it is much improved since the last presidential election. As the world watches Ohio tonight, they will benefit from more accurate and timely reports of voting results.”
Green Party candidate Bob Fitrakis sued Husted on the basis that certain software used in the Ohio election would allow officials to see and change people’s votes. The judge was not convinced.
