Supreme Court Throws Out Thousands Of Votes With New Rule
(HorizonPost.com) – In a poll conducted in October by the New York Times and Siena College, 18% of registered voters responded “not too much,” and 10% said “not at all” when asked how much they believed the results of the 2022 midterm elections would be accurate.
According to the same study, 29% of respondents thought Donald Trump was the real winner of the 2020 election.
Due to this mistrust, more voters are submitting ‘Right to Know requests to their county election offices. These requests for election-related public records flooded Pennsylvania and other states like Ohio earlier this year.
Sean Drasher, the director of elections in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, remarked, “We were getting them so quickly we could not keep up with them.” “The right-to-know procedure is excellent, but we weren’t prepared for possible abuse. A person or group might quickly submit dozens or more right-to-know requests.”
Drasher thinks that voters who disagree or doubt the legitimacy of the 2020 election coordinated a coordinated campaign to flood his office with these requests.
Many of our requests came from people who were instructed on what to ask for by an online source, according to Drasher. “We observed that many of our queries were just boilerplate text,”
Republicans and Democrats in Pennsylvania have been engaged in a legal spat over undated mail-in votes. The state Supreme Court decided on Tuesday that these votes shouldn’t be included in the forthcoming election after the RNC filed a case.
We will have undated ballots, which we can simply separate. We can then submit the results with or without them, and we’ll follow the court’s instructions from there, according to Drasher.
According to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, election officials must reserve and set away those votes. If a federal lawsuit overturns this ruling after the election and orders the votes to be counted, they might actually be reevaluated.
Democrats have a long history of voting via mail than Republicans. Therefore, this Supreme Court judgment may affect thousands of Democratic votes throughout the Commonwealth.
