Not really. The US Supreme Court is holding each State to it's own laws. I don't like the Pennsylvania ruling but there is precedent for it in State law.

If a state decided to make a law that mail in ballots for this election would be counted if they are received by April 1st of 2021, we would need to hold off on the inauguration of POTUS until then?


No, it would conflict with the Electoral process as delineated in the Constitution.


Reading through Justice Gorsuch's concurrence with the Supreme Court decision he makes it clear that States do not have the sole power to define election laws in their state.


Art. I, §4, cl. 1. And the Constitution provides a second layer of protection too.
If state rules need revision, Congress is free to alter them.
Ibid. (“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections
for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in
each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may
at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations . . . ”).

I already addressed this, the Wisconsin situation was via fiat, not law. Gorsuch states:


I write separately to note that this case presents different issues than the applications this Court recently denied in Scarnati v. Boockvar, ante, at ___, and Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar, ante, at ___. While the Pennsylvania applications implicated the authority of state courts to apply their own constitutions to election regulations, this case involves federal intrusion on state lawmaking processes.


The 'Federal intrusion' is a district judge.

Additionally:


In September, a Wisconsin federal judge ruled that voters should have the extra time to return their ballots amid the pandemic, finding that the state had violated the Constitution by requiring absentee ballots be returned no later than Election Day.


The State's laws were Constitutional, it is their purview, the Federal Judge acted inappropriately.

Thank-you! I was drawing from memory on Pennsylvania. The media is buzzing about the Wisconsin decision, even today.

I am going to be old fashioned and vote in person ON election day.
I thought the whole point of mail in ballots were to help people avoid going to the polls. They don't have to even bother to get to the polls and now it is too much bother for them to mail them to get there on time when they have had weeks... even months to get their ballots and mail them???

Can I go to the polling place and vote after 8 pm on the day of the election? NO!
This year is pissing me off.


Me too. Hey, it is a way of getting out of the house and talking to other locals in line. A social gathering. It sucks that the township does not have cookies and coffee anymore for the election because of covid. Will have to bring my own coffee I guess.

They should have to be received a full two weeks before Election Day.


The Ballots have to be postmarked no later than November 3rd and received at the (?Some place?) no later than November 3rd at 8pm. If a mail delivery truck is late, that's not good.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the ballots in Pennsylvania could be received and counted up to 5 days after the election, so long as they were postmarked on November 3rd (election day), or earlier.

I bet if a Republican in PA wanted to, he/she could have the U.S. Supreme Court overrule the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, in a heartbeat. And any other state for that matter. Presumably, what the U.S. Supreme Court rules, is supposed to be the "law of the land".

But that's just speculation, because I'm not an attorney.


I believe Trump said they will be appealing that ruling to a higher court.

Is Amy Coney-Barrett seated and ready to hear the Pennsylvania case?

President Trump did THREE rallies in that state yesterday, and moved his Ohio campaign director over to Pennnsylvania.

Being allowed to count ballots that don't have a postmark, opens the door for lots of cheating.


Pennsylvania election officials have asked the state Supreme Court to allow them to count ballots without a postmark as long as they're received within three days of Election Day.

Virginia has adopted a similar rule,

and Nevada recently passed a election law that allows for the same thing.

this is absolutely ludicrious. That essentially allows them to just "deliver votes" since no post mark is needed... I can see it now. Trump wins on election night. All of a sudden, two days later a mysterious 18 wheeler pulls up with just enough votes to give the Democrats the win (none of the votes post marked). It will be attributed to some "clerical error" and teh truck never made it on time...

That's undoubtedly part of their plan, because the states that allow "no postmark" are predicted to be very close.

If Trump wins on Election night, then loses a few days later, due to mailed-in ballots, America will erupt into anarchy that makes the BLM/ANTIFA violence look trivial by comparison.

I'm a Pennsylvania resident and I'm very worried about fraud here. I live in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area, the 3rd-largest metro area after Philly and Pittsburgh. This area is notorious for corruption when it comes to our local politicians, school boards, you name it. I have zero confidence in our local election officials. And I know Philly has a long history of corruption as well. I don't know too much about Pittsburgh.

Correct - and they will have 3 says to prepare fraudulent votes KNOWING how many they need.
Not only is there no requirement for a postmark, but also no requirement to validate signatures.

EXACTLY - the outrageous changes to mail-in ballot rules are happening in the closely run states.

Great news!

It's Election Day, not Election Days or Election Week.

Hopefully PA follows suit.

Also, thank you Care for the pretty decently event threads you always make!
