Judge addresses BOE's voting concerns

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A trial judge has turned away North Carolina's effort to avoid using the polling-place software of a company that U.S. officials said was targeted by Russian hackers.

Superior Court Judge Paul Ridgeway denied the state elections board's request to intervene on Monday in the case of an administrative law judge, who ordered that nearly 30 counties can use the electronic poll book software of VR Systems, despite the state's concerns. The elections board has decided to appeal.
