Judge says online voter registration illegal

Email

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie illegally set up an online voter registration system, a judge ruled today.

Ramsey County Judge John Guthmann ordered Ritchie to end online registration at midnight Tuesday, but said anyone who has registered via the Internet by then will not have to register again. After that, the judge ruled, registration will be void.

Ritchie's office had no immediate comment.
