If They Can’t Cheat, They Can’t Win: John Fetterman’s Campaign Sues to Allow Undated or Misdated Ballots Counted
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled last Tuesday that undated mail-in ballots cannot be counted in this year’s midterm election.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court sided with Republicans in their lawsuit seeking to prevent the counting of improperly completed ballots in the general election.
Democrats in the state fought to count every ballot real or imaginary.
This decision was a blow to their plans for the steal – every fraudulent vote counts.
The PA Supreme Court agrees with us that incorrectly or undated mail ballots can not be counted in next week’s elections.
Republicans went to court. Now Democrats have to follow the law.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Rules Undated Mail Ballots Can’t Be Countedhttps://t.co/uzgamQeFOA

But the Supreme Court ruling did not stop Pennsylvania Democrats and John Fetterman’s campaign from filing lawsuits this weekend to allow all ballots that are undated or misdated from being counted.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported:
Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s campaign for U.S. Senate has joined the legal fight over whether mail ballots with no date or the incorrect date should be counted in Tuesday’s election.
The Democratic campaign sued Pennsylvania elections officials Monday asking a federal judge to order that all mail ballots be counted regardless of what date, if any, voters wrote on the outside of the envelope.
State law requires that voters handwrite a date on the outer envelope when returning their mail ballots, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled last week that undated and wrongly dated mail ballots be set aside and not counted. The court issued a follow-up order Saturday setting specific date ranges that the handwritten dates must fall within.
There will likely be tens of thousands of undated and wrongly dated ballots rejected statewide under that ruling. Because mail ballots are so disproportionately used by Democrats over Republicans, that will likely mean thousands, if not tens of thousands, of net votes for Fetterman that are rejected.
