A judge has denied the request from supporters of a food labeling measure in Oregon to block the certification of election results.

Measure 92 would require food manufacturers and retailers to label genetically engineered foods. It fell just 800 votes short in the November election, and a statewide recount is underway.

Supporters filed a lawsuit Monday to get the state to count around 46 hundred ballots that had been rejected for invalid signatures.

Yes on 92 campaign manager Paige Richardson says her group will continue to look for a way to get those ballots counted by the recount deadline of December 12th.
