HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Some of Pennsylvania's largest counties were among those working Monday to help voters fix mail-in ballots that have fatal flaws such as incorrect dates or missing signatures on the envelopes used to send them in.
Elections officials in Philadelphia and Allegheny, which includes Pittsburgh, announced measures they were taking in response to state Supreme Court orders in recent days that said mail-in ballots may not be counted if they lack accurate handwritten dates on the exterior envelopes.
Ahead of Tuesday's midterms, more than a million mail-in and absentee ballots have already been returned in Pennsylvania, with Democrats far more likely than Republicans to vote by mail. The numbers are large enough that they might matter in a close race, such as the contest between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz that could determine majority control of the U.S. Senate.
The Pennsylvania litigation was filed by Republican groups and is among legal efforts by both parties in multiple states to have courts sort out disputes over voting rules and procedures ahead of the midterm election.
A new federal lawsuit over the envelope dates was filed Monday in Pittsburgh federal court by the national congressional and senatorial Democratic campaign organizations, two Democratic voters and Fetterman's U.S. Senate campaign. They sued county boards of election across the state, arguing that throwing out ballots that lack proper envelope dates would violate a provision in the 1964 U.S. Civil Rights Act that says people can't be kept from voting based on what the lawsuit calls “needless technical requirements.”

More Democrat party induced election chaos. They love it this way. Fair and orderly elections are anathema to them RATS!
Chaotic elections are easier to steal.
In my obviously false memories of the past, Pennsylvania was a respected state.
Now it’s a DemocRAT state.
Pity to watch that respect evaporate faster than a news report on Pelosi’s hubby and his boyfriend.
Notice where this is coming from. I loathe Democrats and city folks.
I don’t know if it’s fraud. But if I was a Democrat, I’d be embarrassed by my fellow voters who can fill out a simple mail in ballot. It’s gonna be very difficult getting in touch with every voter who has a problem with their ballot and getting them in there to sign and date or whatever needs to be done. if they get 50% I’ll be damn amazed.
If the rats steal the Senate the blame falls squarely on the GOP.
FOOL ME ONCE? SHAME ON YOU
FOOL ME TWICE? SHAME ON ME
Temporarily filling-in for lightman,
while he's smashing PA's demonKKKrat voting poll fraud & corruption,
on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday.
“I don’t know if it’s fraud.”
Here is how it goes:
Thank you, lightman and carriage hill.
GWB doing a little joe biden/fetterman there
I think we all know how they’re helping them. 😣
If they can show up to fix mistakes, why did they vote by mail?

You know what scurries? Rats scurry.
Democrats far more likely than Republicans to vote by mail.
(I know the response: democrats, hard workers all, are oppressed by cruel bosses and have to work two or three jobs to survive in this horrible capitalist society).
Somehow FDR got elected four times without the benefit of mail-in voting, absentee voting, etc. etc. And the nation knew the results of his elections the night of the elections. But we can’t be expected to do that now. It might take several days to ‘properly count all the votes’.
