Pennsylvania Mail-In Voting Law Faces Major Legal Setback


I have said it before, and I’ll say it again…if there was no fraud in the 2020 election then why change voting laws?

Democrats are keen to codify mail in voting schemes into law nationwide, and this has been one of their main policy initiatives for the last 2 years.

Those initiatives are facing heavy blowback in Pennsylvania according to the latest reports…

Sources indicate that Pennsylvania’s mail-in voting law has hit a legal hurdle as a state court recently shot down efforts to keep universal mail-in voting as a permanent feature of the voting landscape.

Here’s what we currently know:

The Epoch Times reports:

Commonwealth Court Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt previously wrote in late January that the law violated the state Constitution. On Wednesday, Leavitt said Republicans who challenged the law are likely to prevail when the state Supreme Court hears the case next month.

The judge also wrote that an appeal by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration assumes the higher court will overrule decisions that were rendered in 1862 and 1924, which would invalidate laws passed to expand absentee voting. Administration lawyers did not identify an error in those decisions, Leavitt added.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette adds:

The state Supreme Court scheduled the case for oral arguments on March 8. The Commonwealth Court’s Jan. 28 decision to strike down the mail-in voting law can take effect March 15, under Judge Leavitt’s new ruling.

That timeline allows county boards of election to notify voters of any change in law with two months to go before the May 17 primary, Judge Leavitt wrote.
