THROW ‘EM OUT: PA judge sides with Trump campaign, orders ballots with no proof of ID be discarded

PA Secretary of State issued directive in all 67 counties before Election Day allowing voters missing ID to cure their mail-in ballots until November 12

The Trump campaign secured a second win in Pennsylvania on Thursday after a judge ruled that ballots with outstanding proof of identification beyond six days post-election should not be counted. 

Pennsylvania law outlines this very clearly.

While this may seem obvious, even self-explanatory, Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar actually issued a directive in all 67 counties, right before Election Day, that allowed voters missing proof of identification to cure their mail-in ballots until November 12. 

In some states, voters are provided an opportunity to “cure” or fix their ballot if problems – like a missing signature – occur, according to the Associated Press.

Very suspicious. 

The judge agreed with the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee that Boockvar did not have legal grounds, “lacked statutory authority” to implement a change in the identification deadline because state law did not permit it. 

“[T]he Court concludes that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth, lacked statutory authority to issue the November 1, 2020 guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections insofar as that guidance purported to change the deadline…for certain electors to verify proof of identification,” Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt wrote. 

Boockvar’s directive was issued just after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted up to three days after the election, which did not fly with the Trump campaign. 

A lawsuit by the Trump campaign challenging that ruling is pending petition in the Supreme Court, the campaign claiming that the decision to accept mail-in ballots so late goes against state law. 

A hearing is scheduled for Friday to determine if “over thousands of ballots” missing crucial information were incorrectly counted by election officials in the Keystone State.

  1. Who will be doing the recount? How does that work to be credible? Does one party check it and then the other party verify at the same time? I have very little trust

  2. Of course the people who changed the law illegally are the first to complain when it is challenged legally. Had they not changed the law 71 million people might have had a little more faith in what has now become the greatest fraud spectacle the free world has ever witnessed.

  3. There is a need for clean voter rolls and voter ID laws in all 50 states. States should be required to clean their voter rolls before every election whether it’s mid-term or National…

  4. I hope the Pennsylvania State Legislature is going to step in and clean this mess up. AUDIT throw out the illegal ballots and recount.

  5. A Revote is the best way to find the truth, i can’t believe lil boy biden got a million votes, if so we have a lot of work teaching our children truth. We can never allow this to happen again, no matter what we must do. Children’s future freedom is what we will loose if we are going to turn a blind eye again
