BIG WIN: PA Ballots With Incorrect Dates Will Be Saved, Not Counted

  • Pennsylvania’s highest court on Tuesday ordered officials to disallow mail-in ballots with the wrong date marked on the envelope, potentially throwing out numerous votes in close races that could determine control of the U.S. Congress in elections next week.
  • The ruling is a win for Republicans, who filed the case and who have been fighting to eliminate ballots with incorrect information on them in an effort they say is meant to ensure election security.
  • Democrats say the lawsuits are really efforts to disallow votes and could sway tight races.
