A Pennsylvania court has ruled that a state law allowing for universal vote-by-mail was unconstitutional. A January 28th opinion by Judge Mary Leavitt explains why the court struck down Act 77, which allowed all Pennsylvanians to vote via mail-in-ballots during elections. “As we witnessed in 2020, Act 77 in its current form is susceptible to unconstitutional changes that weaken its election security safeguards.

They will be put in a secure location and then hopefully starting Friday, as
A municipal election in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania is experiencing a mix-up with thousands of mail-in ballots. Of the 25,500 mail-in ballots requested so far, 2,700 have contained instructions meant for a different county. “They said that their instructions told them they did not need to pay for postage. However their return envelope said they did need to pay for postage,” Chief clerk and chief registrar of the Lancaster County Board of Elections and Registration Commission Christa Miller said.

A Florida man admitted to authorities he engaged in mail-in ballot fraud in the 2020 election. “Allegedly, the father voted the son’s mail ballot,” Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Chris Anderson revealed in reference to 68-year-old Roland Bauer. Florida authorities said a man who moved out of the state seven years ago reported that someone posing as him requested, received, and submitted a ballot.
