Pennsylvania Supreme Court Sides With Dems – Allows Mailed Ballots to Be Counted Three Days After Election Day

On Thursday, Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court sided with the state’s Democrats, allowing a three-day extension past Election Day to count mail-in ballots.

The vital battleground state’s Supreme Court “granted the Democratic Party’s request to order an extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day-deadline to count mailed-in ballots for three days after Election Day,” The Associated Press reported Thursday afternoon.

The PA court has a Democratic majority of 5-2 over Republicans.

The ruling also “authorized the use of satellite election offices and drop boxes — which Philadelphia and its heavily populated suburbs are planning to use help relieve the pressure from an avalanche of mailed-in ballots expected in the Nov. 3 presidential election,” the AP added.

As reported by The Daily Wire earlier this month, elected officials within the state are battling over mail-in ballots, in light of the disastrous June primary process: “For its June primary, Pennsylvania implemented no-excuse absentee voting, meaning voters did not need an excuse to request an absentee ballot, for the first time ever. Mail-in ballots skyrocketed to over 1.4 million in the state, overloading the system and delaying the outcomes of several races by weeks.”

In July, an experiment conducted by CBS News to test the integrity of mail-in voting ended in disaster; a stunning 3% of the votes were never counted.
