Fetterman Team Sues To Have Undated, Misdated Ballots Counted

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled Tuesday that mail-in ballots sent in without the required date on the outer envelope must not be counted, following a lawsuit from the Republican National Committee.

  • The campaign of Pennsylvania Democrat Senate nominee John Fetterman on Monday reportedly sued state election officials, demanding that a federal judge order all mail-in ballots be counted regardless of whether they have correctly filled out the date on the envelope.
  • The lawsuit comes just one day before the midterm election, with the state’s acting Secretary of State having already said last month there would likely be delays in counting the ballots.
  • The Fetterman campaign sued in federal court in Pittsburgh alongside the Democrats’ House and Senate campaign arms and two Democratic voters in Erie County who have submitted undated mail ballots.
  • The RNC’s lawsuit alleged that Pennsylvania law requires a voter to provide a date. The suit asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to order counties to segregate the undated and any incorrectly dated ballots.
