On Tuesday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in or absentee ballots that are considered outdated are ineligible to be counted for this year’s November midterms. This vote was decided unanimously in favor of the Republican National Committee.

This lawsuit filed by the RNC specifically stopped “undated or incorrectly” labeled ballots.

“The Pennsylvania county boards of elections are hereby ordered 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,” the court stated.

Pennsylvania was quite the battleground post-2020 election for mail-in voting debates. The state’s sharp swing in votes throughout the night inspired concern in many conservatives that the ballot system was flawed.

The Daily Caller contributor Brianna Lyman discussed in a Twitter thread how this would have impacted the 2020 election. Lyman explained how after a failed GOP Supreme Court challenge to this very issue, Kathy Boockvar, the State Secretary, went on to count outdated and improperly labeled ballots that may have changed the election results.

“Voters deserved this type of election integrity in 2020 when Boockvar wrongly extended the counting of late ballots missing postmarks,” Lyman tweeted.

U.S Senator for the state of Pennsylvania, Pat Toomey, supported the ruling in a statement writing, “Today’s Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling is a victory for the rule of law. The law in Pennsylvania is clear: Mail-in ballot envelops must be dated. Counting undated ballots would be in violation of the law. Not a close call.”

The board of elections will now “segregate and preserve” these ballots in the direction of the court.

The justices also split 3-3 on a decision of possibly adding mandatory envelope dates to make this a non-issue. This split came as three justices decided this would violate the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964, which states that immaterial errors or omissions should not be used to prevent voting.

The statistics of mail-in voting are staggering as a reported 70% of mail-in votes come from Democrats whereas only 20% comes from Republicans. This could sway the elections.
