The U.S. Supreme Court gave the green light to counting undated mail-in ballots in a contested Pennsylvania local election, a move with broader implications for close races in November’s midterm elections.

 

Over the objection of three justices, the Court restored a federal appeals court ruling that said disqualifying ballots received on time but lacking a date on the return envelope would violate federal voting rights.

 

Pennsylvania state law requires that voters include a date next to the signature, even though mail ballots are typically postmarked and dated again by election officials when they are received. The appeals court concluded the absence of the handwritten date was an “immaterial” error.

 

The Supreme Court did not elaborate on its decision to allow counting to proceed, and it is not binding precedent. But it does suggest that a majority of justices support the view that discarding ballots over small administrative errors or omissions would harm the franchise.

 

Justice Samuel Alito, in a dissent joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch, said he would have stayed the appeals court ruling in order to review the merits of the dispute, which he said “could well affect the outcome of the fall elections.”

 

Alito wrote that he believes the Third Circuit opinion is “very likely wrong.”

 

“When a mail-in ballot is not counted because it was not filled out correctly, the voter is not denied ‘the right to vote.’ Rather, that individual’s vote is not counted because he or she did not follow the rules for casting a ballot.”

Mail it in, call it in, Uber your vote in. Funny how the Democrats want loose rules at every turn. But not to cheat, just to make sure all the dead votes count.

Roberts, Kavanaugh and Barrett are all Deep State Cabal. It is infuriating, but they will be calling 988 once Trump releases the Truth.

“…that individual’s vote is not counted because he or she did not follow the rules…”

We used to call that common sense.
Not so common on the Supreme Kangaroo Court these days.

Unconstitutional ruling for Presidential elections. The Constitution says the legislatures choose how electors are chosen, so legislative rules cannot be overturned by commission, judges, clerks, or secretaries.

The federal Supreme Court usurps State voting laws? At the very least, this ruling is unconstitutional.

This wasn’t the big issue in PA, it’s mail in voting that isn’t allowed. That is the case they should have ruled on.

Of COURSE the Leftists will cheat again, any way they can.
They don’t care if we catch them, (which we did).
They don’t care if we expose them (which we did).
And they don’t care if we’re mad at them (which I am).
They cheat. It’s what they do.

Leftists? Rightists cheat foo dawg. Republicans have brought in electronic voting systems like dominion, es&s etc into their states without the aid of dems. Wake up bro. You are getting fu**ed from both sides.

They should then just eliminate all the rules. Just think about how much easier it will be to run elections. You can just write your choice on a piece of toilet paper and submit it. They will flush it down the toilet and tell you who won. A couple cycles of this and you won’t have to waste the toilet paper-problem solved.

As I said a few weeks ago. If people think they aren’t going to pull out all the stops to win in November just like that did the last election your not paying attention. They still haven’t rectified the situation with Dominion Voting Machines, and they are using the courts to allow all kind of little things they can use to get away with their voter fraud. People are going to be livid come November when this country is burning to the ground from the chaos these people will cause to keep power.

It’s too hard for the post office to back date ballots when the voter dates it too. This error is about to become a lot more common in PA

2022 Another “legal” stolen election. Thanks Supreme Court. The court is assisting in it’s own destruction. This will embolden the Dems to do more violent harassment.

I am not a judge, but this seems kind of easy to know

We as a nation need more consequences for being inept or stupid, beginning in grade school. Instead, schools are giving 50% credit for not doing assignments.
I got yelled at by losers in the doctors office because they I asked them to pay their office visit copay. When I pointed out that they SIGNED an agreement stating they would do so, EVERY TIME the offender said that they didn’t read it, they just signed it. Those are the folks who we bailed out of their mortgages in 2009 and whose every failure is put upon someone else.
If you can’t follow simple directions your vote should not count.

With all the questions about voter integrity and mail-in ballots, this was another weak-ass move by the new justices. Kav’s lower lip was probably sticking out and quivering like a three-year old child and tears were running down his cheeks as he stabbed law abiding citizens in the back, again.

Versions of this quote have been around for hundreds of years:

This is how a banana republic starts, where the rules of elections are bent to allow latitude for cheating. Voters need to properly fill out their election forms. If citizens improperly filled out passports, would the government give them a passport? If the IRS caught an error in paying taxes, are they going to dismiss the error and allow it to stand? The constitution and rules apply to everyone equally, not just for the advantage of one party. If republicans cheat in next election are their votes going to be able to be counted?

If you cannot follow simple voting rules you shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
