SCOTUS Gives Major Win To Election Integrity In Pennsylvania


The Supreme Court of the United States just issued a surprise ruling…

SCOTUS has vacated an earlier ruling from the Third Circuit Court of Appeals that ordered an election integrity case to be dismissed as having no relevance.

The original case was brought forward by David Ritter, a former Republican candidate for judge.

In his original suit, Ritter claimed that 257 ballots, that did not have dates on them, should not have been counted in his race. Ritter lost his race…

His case was dismissed as moot, but SCOTUS has since ruled that the Republican case can proceed and that the Third Circuit’s previous ruling cannot be used as precedent. This will not change the outcome of Ritter’s bid for a judgeship.

Liberals were not too happy with the ruling:


The Epoch Times provided more clarity on the ruling:

Pennsylvania Republican legislators and conservatives filed amicus briefs saying the Third Circuit Court’s ruling threatened the integrity of the 2022 midterm elections.

But the Supreme Court’s action on Tuesday means that the Third 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.

Vacating the ruling does not change Ritter’s loss in his race.


Reuters took a leftist lens to the decision:

The Supreme Court has a 6-3 conservative majority.

The Civil Rights Act provision at issue prohibits officials from disqualifying a voter’s ballot for an error that is not “material” to determining whether the person was qualified to vote, such as their age or citizenship.

The law targeted practices common in Southern states during the era of racial segregation that used minor ballot mistakes to block Black people from voting.
