Court will not weigh in on Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballot deadline before election - SCOTUSblog

The US Supreme Court rejected a request by Republican Party to fast track their challenge to a PA Supreme Court ruling. So that means – the extended deadline of ballots mailed on or before Nov 3rd AND received by Nov 6th will be counted.



Here is an article from the US Supreme Court blog https://www.scotusblog.com/2020/10/court-will-not-weigh-in-on-pennsylvanias-mail-in-ballot-deadline-before-election/#more-297337

The Supreme Court on Wednesday afternoon rejected a request by Pennsylvania Republicans to fast-track their challenge to a ruling by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that requires election officials to count mail-in ballots received within three days after Election Day. Republican legislators and the

Election Updates (As of 10.26.2020)
VERDICT: Ballots can’t be tossed out over voter signature
UNANIMOUS ruling
PA Supreme Court Justices ruling stated:
“County boards of elections are prohibited from rejecting absentee or mail-in ballots based on signature
comparison conducted by county election officials or employees, or as the result of third-party
challenges based on signature analysis and comparisons,”
Reference Story: AP Press: Ballots can't be tossed out over voter signature, court says
LAWSUIT: GOP asks US Supreme Court to block PA ballot extension
Current ruling: PA Supreme Court ruling requires county election officials to receive and count mailed-in
ballots that arrive up until Nov. 6, even if they don’t have a clear postmark, as long as there is no proof it
was mailed after the polls closed.
Base of the suit: Pennsylvania Republican Party is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to speedily take up its
case to block counties in the presidential battleground state from counting mailed-in ballots received up
to three days after the Nov. 3 election. Without an expedited consideration, the Republican Party’s right
to appeal and the U.S. Supreme Court’s “power to resolve the important constitutional and legal
questions presented for this election—will be irrevocably lost,”
Arguments:
PA Attorney General states:
“Changing the rules late in the fourth quarter causes confusion and disenfranchises voters,” Shapiro said
in a statement. “That’s what the Purcell Principle is designed to guard against. The Pennsylvania
Supreme Court was within their bounds to allow the three-day extension and it should stay intact.”
GOP states:
“…such an extension, arguing that it violates federal law that sets Election Day as the first Tuesday after
the first Monday in November and that such a decision constitutionally belongs to lawmakers, not the
courts.”
