NC voting machine suit settled
On October 29, 2010, the North Carolina Republican Party filed suit in federal court alleging that voting machines were obstructing Republican voters from casting the ballots of their choice. On October 30, the parties settled, requiring the North Carolina Board of Elections to instruct polling place officials to tell every voter to read a sign entitled "Voter Alert." The sign brings attention to the sensitivity of the voting machines and asks the voters to double-check their votes before casting them.
