  • In a major victory for the GOP, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court banned the counting of undated or misdated absentee ballots in the upcoming midterm election.
  • The court’s order issued Tuesday told the Pennsylvania county boards of elections “to refrain from counting any absentee and mail-in ballots received for the November 8, 2022 general election that are contained in undated or incorrectly dated outer envelopes.”
  • State and national Republican groups had argued that the state is illegally dodging state law and a Supreme Court ruling by saying it will count undated absentee ballots.
