TROY, NY - Jurors in the Troy voter fraud trial were sent home early on Friday.

Around 2:30 p.m. on Friday the jury told the court they were still deadlocked. Judge Pulver directed them to go back to the jury room to keep deliberating on the charges for at least another hour. However they were unable to reach a verdict.

The jury has been weighing charges against two Troy politicians. Troy democratic politicians Edward McDonough and Michael LoPorto both face multiple charges. Former Rensselaer County Commissioner Edward McDonough and former Troy Councilman Michael LoPorto are accused of trying to steer the 2009 Working Family Party with an absentee ballot scheme.

Jurors will meet again on Monday to continue deliberations.
