Voting machine lawsuit moves ahead

WICHITA (KSNT) –  The lawsuit filed by a Wichita mathematician seeking voting machine tapes after finding statistical anomalies in election counts is set to go to trial early next year.

A scheduling order issued today sets a one-day bench trial for March 22 to hear the open records case brought by Wichita State University Statistician Beth Clarkson.

Clarkson wants the tapes to do a statistical model by checking the error rate on electronic voting machines.

Top election officials want the court to block the release of tapes, arguing they are not subject to the Open Records Act.
