Shelby Voters Appeal Dismissal of Election Security Suit

A group of Shelby County voters is appealing the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging the security of voting machines in the county and calling for a switch to handwritten ballots and a voter-verifiable paper trail. Shelby County Advocates for Valid Elections filed an appeal to U.S. District Judge Thomas Parker’s ruling last month that their lawsuit failed to show that any harm has come to them and that they have no legal standing. The group says Parker disregarded “circumstantial evidence that election tampering has occurred” in the county, WREG reports.
