A coalition of groups calling itself "Voter Georgia" argued the
electronic voting system is illegal and unconstitutional because it fails to give voters a record showing their ballot was recorded correctly.
Thomas County voting officials say they've been using the machines since they were implemented statewide back in 2002, and have never had any problems.
"We don't have very many complaints about not having a paper receipt I think that's just a small group that's really concerned about that. Actually most of the voters here in Thomas County love these machines," said Lisa Ouzts, Chief Deputy Registrar for Thomas County.
The judge issued a summary judgment on behalf of the state, stating that electronic voting machines are reliable and there have been no documented cases of fraud.
