It ain't over . . .

. . . until Justice Kimberly O'Connor sings.

We're getting word that there is a hearing going on right now in Albany Supreme Court. Liberty is asking for a temporary restraining order to require that the State Board put their DREs (touch-screen electronic voting systems) on the selection list provided to counties for accessible voting systems they can purchase (counties must make decisions on or before February 8).

Developing . . . .

UPDATE: Albany Supreme Court Justice Kimerbly O’Connor denied Liberty’s application for a temporary restraining order to compel the NYSBOE to include Liberty on the list of approved units for selection by the county boards of elections.

Justice O’Connor has scheduled a hearing on an Article 78 proceeding brought by Liberty which challenges the State Board of Elections’ failure to authorize the purchase of Liberty's DREs for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 31.
