The Democrat-dominated Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has extended mail-in ballots to be counted up to three days after the election, in an unprecedented attack on election norms.
The move – called a “big win for Biden” by CNN – will cause further consternation over the legitimacy of the November 3rd elections.
The Morning Call reported:
Pennsylvania’s highest court gave the Democratic Party a series of victories Thursday in the presidential battleground state, relaxing deadlines on a fledgling mail-in voting law, approving more ballot collection sites and kicking the Green Party’s presidential candidate off the November ballot.
The state Supreme Court, which has a 5-2 Democratic majority, granted the Democratic Party’s request to order an extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day deadline to count mailed-in ballots.
The extension it granted will allow three more days to receive ballots that were mailed before polls closed. Democrats and their allies cited the prospect of postal service delays in invalidating huge numbers of ballots.
In party-line decisions by the state’s elected justices, the court also said the law allows the use of satellite election offices and drop boxes by counties, and ruled that the Green Party’s candidate for president did not strictly follow procedures for getting on the ballot in November and cannot appear on it.
