A federal appeals court agrees that a lawsuit challenging Ohio's voting system should be heard in court.
CINCINNATI (AP) The League of Women Voters' lawsuit says inconsistencies and irregularities in the 2004 election violated some Ohio voters' rights. The league wants a court order requiring the secretary ofstate and governor to put a fair and competent system in place.
A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled unanimously Wednesday that the lawsuit should continue in U.S. district court in Toledo.
The state has made elections changes since 2004, but elections still bring complaints. A U.S. House race remains undecided three weeks later because of challenges to provisional balloting in Franklin County.
