News 8 reported Wednesday that it looked like the case was winding down because the testimony of the city’s Assistant Town Clerk seemed to rebuke one of the key allegations made in the lawsuit – that dozens of absentee ballots were received weeks after the primary ended.

But, according to the newspaper, the judge in the case is letting activists challenge the results present new evidence.

The activists want a re-vote. They claim ballot fraud put incumbent Mayor Joe Ganim over the top in his race against State Senator Marilyn Moore.
