    Pennsylvania Supreme Court | September 17, 2020 | Pennsylvania Supreme Court
    I have not read the opinion yet, but from this article, the Court said that despite being against the state statutes, ballots arriving 3 days after Nov. 3, will be counted even if there is no postmark. I don't see how Trump wins Pennsylvania if this is allowed to stand. -ajf The three parts of the opinion are here:

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s highest court gave the Democratic Party a series of victories Thursday, including one allowing repairs to glitches and gray areas in the battleground state’s fledgling mail-in voting law and another that kicked 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 a three-day extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day deadline to count mailed-in ballots.

    PITTSBURGH — In the latest sign of the chaos overshadowing the 2020 election, none of Pennsylvania’s counties will be able to send out ballots to voters Monday, the first day the critical battleground state allows counties to do so. Due to a slew of lawsuits and other issues, the commonwealth, which has drawn intense interest from Democrats and Republicans after June’s disastrous primary, has not finalized its ballot less than eight weeks before Election Day.

    A watchdog group is requesting that media outlets release their plans for election night coverage amid heightened scrutiny over vote counting and the prospect that a winner in the presidential race may not be named until days after Election Day. The (*SELF DESCRIBED*) National Task Force on Election Crises, a group of election experts and academics, released a letter Thursday that it sent to The Associated Press, Fox News and the National Election Pool, which includes the three broadcast networks and CNN, urging them to explain to the public how they intend to incorporate the expected avalanche of mail ballots...

    Democrats are setting up Louis DeJoy and the U.S. Postal Service to be the ‘fall guy’ for 2020 vote-by-mail elections, ignoring much-needed USPS reforms. Democrats have a new prime target in their political sights: U.S. Postal Service and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. On Friday, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold sued USPS and DeJoy for a supposed “attempt at voter suppression that violates the United States Constitution and federal statutes and must be stopped immediately.” This time, the “voter suppression” and “constitutional violation” came in the form of a postcard sent to voters with incomplete information about vote-by-mail.Really? One deficient...
  • The Real Reason Democrats are Pushing for Mail-In Ballots

    09/16/2020 8:49:15 AM PDT · by MNDude · 30 replies
    The Democrats don't have to cheat in the casting of ballots. They simply don't have to count the ballots at all. It's quite clever, and Professor Tribe, along with the U.S. Postal Service, provided the roadmap. Democrats will push mail-in ballots, for voter safety, they say — as in it's safe to attend John Lewis's funeral without distancing, but try that for your own family member's funeral. The media will fan the flames with exaggerated case counts and deaths. Democrat governors will keep their subjects in fear with increasing mandates – masks, face shields, school and business shutdowns — such...
  • Pa. State Department: Counties can't discard mail-in ballots over signature

    Pennsylvania officials have directed counties not to discard mail-in ballots solely because an election official believes a signature doesn’t match the one in the voter’s file. The new guidance issued Monday prompted several organizations, including the Campaign Legal Center (CLC), to drop a lawsuit against the Pennsylvania’s Department of State. The state now has a uniform process for verifying signatures instead of leaving it to the discretion of local officials. Under the new guidance, voters will have the opportunity to fix issues with the signature on their ballots. “As a result of this case, Pennsylvania voters can cast their vote...

    And what a very neat number it is too. Don't worry folks. This is the kind of thing that almost never happens, but it keeps happening every week. I'm sure it won't happen when there's a national election at stake and the party that habitually commits voter fraud is desperate to take the White House by any means from burning down cities to engaging in ballot harvesting. Nothing to worry about or see here. Officials have counted more than 1,600 ballots from New Jersey's July primary that were found last week in a “mislabeled” bin. The 1,666 ballots from Sussex...
  • Mail-Vote Madness in Pennsylvania. The swing state is heading toward an election crackup that could draw the entire country into a legal brawl.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | September 11, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    Pennsylvania has already suffered one interminable mail-vote delay in 2020, and a repeat in November could draw the entire country into a legal brawl, while putting the result of the presidential election into serious doubt. How about heading off this too-predictable debacle before it happens? A week after the June 2 primary, about half the counties in the Keystone State were still tallying ballots. On June 11, Philadelphia alone had 42,255 votes uncounted. President Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016 by 44,292. If Mr. Trump and Joe Biden run neck and neck in November, how long might Pennsylvania keep the Electoral...

    End of The American Dream ^ | Michael Synder | 9-3-20
    It looks like we are headed for the most chaotic presidential election in modern U.S. history. According to some estimates, somewhere around 40 percent of all U.S. voters will vote by mail this year. That means that tens of millions of votes will be going through the postal system, and that has the potential to create all sorts of problems. For one thing, it is going to take a lot of extra time to open those ballots and count them. For states that allow mail-in votes to be counted in advance, that shouldn’t delay final results by too much, but...

    Republican National Committee ^ | 05-06-2020 | Ronna McDaniel
    The RNC and the Trump campaign are aggressively fighting back against the Democrats’ assault on the integrity of our elections. All across the country, Democrats are trying to use coronavirus and the courts to legalize ballot harvesting, implement a nationwide mail-in ballot system, and eliminate nearly every safeguard in our elections. Voters are on our side. Nearly two-thirds (62%) say there is fraud in U.S. elections, and that fraud would concern them under Democrats’ nationwide mail-in ballot system. Americans overwhelmingly approve of the safeguards Democrats are suing to eliminate like signature matching (84%), voter identification (80%), and a ballot receipt...

    Democrats have begun running up a lopsided advantage in early voting as well as absentee ballot requests, in an election what has seen an unprecedented split on voting strategy and furious attacks by the president on mail-voting. The advantage is pronounced in the battleground states that will decide the election, and that are attracting candidate visits and a TV air war. The differential in absentee ballot requests has hit three-to-one in Pennsylvania and North Carolina, two states that President Donald Trump won in 2016 that Joe Biden is hoping to strip back. The advantage in the Keystone state has extended...

    HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — A state district judge on Friday ruled that Harris County can move forward with its plan to send every registered voter an application to request a mail-in ballot for the November general election. Two days after a video conference hearing, Judge R.K. Sandill rejected the Texas attorney general’s request for a temporary injunction blocking the plan. In his ruling, Sandill shot down the state's claim that Harris County Clerk Chris Hollins was acting outside of his authority by sending out the applications and that the move would harm voters.

    The Hill ^ | September 9, 2020 | C. Boyden Gray
    With less than two months to Nov. 3, officials planning to mail live ballots to every voter are running out of time to heed the lessons of the election dispute I survived two decades ago: States must treat every eligible vote the same. But state universal mail-in procedures and shifting ballot count deadlines jeopardize the equal right to vote. Universal mail-in voting risks both the dilution of legitimate votes and the disenfranchisement of eligible voters — equal protection problems eliminated by common-sense absentee voting procedures. In Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court held “the equal dignity owed to each voter”...

    Nothing will more effectively halt DemocratsÂ’ efforts at pushing our country into full-scale civil conflict than shining a bright light on their objectives for all to see. Democrats have been masters at messaging for decades. They focus on a single idea, they and their corrupt allies in the media magnify and propagate the idea, and then they all repeat it endlessly until it is accepted as fact. The idea Democrats are pushing today is that before voting has even begun, the 2020 presidential election is illegitimate.Why are Democrats working to undermine the election, rather than working to win it?

    Forgotten 2005 report warned a small amount of fraud could swing close elections, urged voter ID requirements. In recent months, the debate over mail-in balloting has evolved into a battle between Team Trump's worries about fraud and the claims of Democrats and their news media allies that such concerns are an unwarranted effort at disenfranchising voters. It wasn't always this way. Fifteen years ago this very month, a bipartisan panel of American statesmen and stateswomen — from ex-President Jimmy Carter and ex-Senate leader Tom Daschle on the left to former Secretary of State James Baker and former House Minority Leader...

    An analytics firm bankrolled by billionaire Michael Bloomberg is predicting that while President Trump will appear to win on November 3, Democrat Joe Biden will actually win the election days later due to mail-in voting. Josh Mendelsohn, the CEO of Hawkfish — funded by Bloomberg and currently working for various pro-Biden super PACs — told Axios that his firm predicts a “red mirage” where Trump wins on election day but Biden wins the election days later when mail-in votes are counted: The reason we talk about a red mirage is in fact because we believe that on election night, we...

    A top Democratic data and analytics firm told "Axios on HBO" it's highly likely that President Trump will appear to have won — potentially in a landslide — on election night, even if he ultimately loses when all the votes are counted. Why this matters: Way more Democrats will vote by mail than Republicans, due to fears of the coronavirus, and it will take days if not weeks to tally these. This means Trump, thanks to Republicans doing almost all of their voting in person, could hold big electoral college and popular vote leads on election night. * Imagine America,...
