Republicans File Emergency Applications with Supreme Court to Keep Certain Mail-In Ballots from Being Counted

Various Pennsylvania Republican Party leaders asked the U.S. Supreme Court to disallow counting of mail-in ballots that are received after Election Day in an emergency motion on Monday.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of Keystone State Democrats by permitting mail-in votes to be counted so long as they are received within three days of Election Day.

Such mail-in votes are to be tabulated by local elections officials provided that ballot envelopes clearly show they were mailed by November 3–or even if they are not if the lack of such a postmark is likely the result of error(s) by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).

“[W]e conclude that a ballot received on or before 5:00 p.m. on November 6, 2020, will be presumed to have been mailed by Election Day unless a preponderance of the evidence demonstrates that it was mailed after Election Day,” the court ruled earlier this month. “We emphasize that voters utilizing the USPS must cast their ballots prior to 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, like all voters, including those utilizing drop boxes.”

1. Such creeps. The vote needs to be postmarked by election day. Beyond that, it's the

Post Offices fault, thus Donny Bodybags's henchman's fault, and the vote needs to be counted.

But now they have the 4/4 court, so they'll try anything.
