On March 10, 2011, jurors in the Atlantic City voter fraud case are about to enter a third day of deliberations.
The jurors asked the judge for a copy of his lengthy instructions to them on the law governing the case. A decision on whether they will get it, and in what form, will be made Thursday morning.
The jury must decide whether Councilman Marty Small and five co-defendants tried to steal the 2009 Democratic mayoral primary by tampering with or mishandling absentee ballots designed for voters too sick or confined to make it to the polls on Election Day.
Small was acquitted of similar charges in 2006 involving a mayoral election in which he was not a candidate.
