Judge rules NJ voters can use electronic voting machines for election

A Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday that New Jersey voters can use touch-screen electronic voting machines for the elections on November 2.

Fifteen counties in the state will be using touch-screen voting machines this year. However, one group filed a lawsuit against using the electronic machines. They claim because the machines are computerized, they could be compromised by hackers.

A computer expert says the systems for this election are most likely secure. Some counties have been using touch-screens for almost a decade.
