In one state’s November midterm elections, flawed votes will not be tallied, according to a recent US Supreme Court order for the state of Pennsylvania, which overturns a lower court ruling on the topic.
The Democrats are in a frenzy about the fact that incomplete or erroneous mail-in ballots will not be counted into the total this time around, as they were in 2020.
Joe Hoft reported for The Gateway Pundit and cited a Conservative Brief report:
The United States Supreme Court has sided with a Pennsylvania Republican in a ballot case for a judgeship.
The Supreme Court nixed a lower court ruling that allowed the counting of mail-in ballots that did not have the date on them, the Associated Press reported.
The justices vacated the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling as requested by David Ritter, who lost his 2021 bid for a spot on the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas to a Democratic rival by five votes after 257 absentee ballots without date notations were counted.
The high court’s action means that the 3rd Circuit ruling cannot be used as a precedent in the three states covered by this regional federal appellate court – Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware – to allow the counting of ballots with minor flaws such as the voter failing to fill in the date.
The campaign for Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania recognized that the lower court’s ruling was in error and would negatively impact future elections in the state, so they joined David Ritter in his appeal.
But the campaign for Oz submitted a brief in support of judicial candidate David Ritter. “The Third Circuit’s thinly reasoned and erroneous decision — which addressed a county judicial election conducted more than six months ago — is now being weaponized to undermine the apparent result of a statewide primary election for the Republican nomination to represent Pennsylvania in the United States Senate,” his attorneys said.
In May, the three-judge panel on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling that said election officials should count several hundred mail ballots that were received without a date on the envelopes in an election for county judge that was received on time, Politico reported.
Pennsylvania elections are a joke and have been for some time. In 2019 the state’s auditor reported on the abysmal state of the state’s election process.
For any doubters that the 2020 Election in Pennysylvania was a mess – just look at the videos in the article below.
“The 2020 Election in Pennsylvania should never have been certified for Joe Biden. Never,” Hoft reported.
One Senate candidate in Pennsylvania is unable to talk without the help of a machine, resulting in a rather peculiar election season. It is so stunning that even The View, a show with a left-leaning bias, has caught up on the crisis Democrats face in Pennsylvania.
This may be why Pennsylvania Democrats, who are facing a disaster in their Senate race, have already signaled their intention to disregard the Supreme Court’s decision.

Despite the ruling by the high court, PA state officials are already planning on cheating and pushing their demands that all ballots be counted:
A top election official in Pennsylvania says the state will disregard the U.S. Supreme Court’s guidance on counting mail-in ballots arriving in envelopes with typos or incorrect dates, saying that the state’s Commonwealth Court has already established the practice as licit. CONTINUE READING…
