The problem here is that the New Hampshire Constitution says that any citizen is entitled to an audit according to the law. The law doesn't say much about audits. The SecState says she conducted an audit, and that's that. The judge agreed that if the SecState says she did an audit, that's all anyone is entitled to. Even if what the SecState did was more of a recount of the tabulator tapes and did not look at any actual ballots. Even if there were demonstrated problems with the tapes and machines.
The best chance for moving forward seems to be to convince the legislature to authorize their own audit, similar to the one being conducted in Arizona. The examination of the voting machines in this case did produce useful evidence that may help convince the legislature.
