In November 2006, Voter Action initiated a lawsuit in Ohio challenging the use of electronic voting systems in future elections. With this litigation pending, we currently are working to assist the office of the new Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, to identify solutions and navigate meaningful election reforms. We remain committed to the goal of establishing a remedy in time for the 2008 elections. The lawsuit is accordingly moving toward trial early in 2008.
