The 2020 Election Extension Begins… Pennsylvania Will Accept Mail-In Ballots Three Days After Election

The furious fight over mail-in ballots and dragging out the election has already begun even though election day is more than 40 days away.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court court ruled that state officials can accept mail-in ballots up to three days after the election as long as they were mailed by Election Day as evidenced by a postmark. The court made the ruling to give officials leeway to deal with what is expected to be an avalanche of mail-in votes this year.

Of course, this brings up the problem that some ballots aren’t postmarked. Then what?

The state already had a taste of the issues surrounding mail-in voting during its primaries in June. The deluge of mail-in votes put off finalizing elections by days and weeks.

The ruling is important because Pennsylvania is a “must-win” swing state for President Trump and one where he narrowly prevailed in 2020. If the election comes down to this state and the results aren’t known for weeks, it could lead to a very tense and ugly situation.

    Pennsylvania should not accept ballots after the polls close on election day. In Nebraska early voting ballots must be received by 8 pm central time on election day. The polls are open from 8am to 8 pm central time(7am to 7pm mountain time). You can mail them or place them in a drop box that the election commission in each county has if you request an early voting ballot. You must request one in order to receive one and sign both the request and the envelope in which you return the ballot. If you return the ballot by mail you must mail it in time to reach the election commission office before the closing of the polls. All states should follow Nebraska’s election laws regarding early voting.

    I don’t see how this is fair no matter who your voting for. Has this ever happened in the past and if not why now???

    The Republicans or some of their supporters should challenge that ruling in court.

    It is getting so rediculouse each day what the country is becoming. Politicians, start working together with President Trump. . Like him or not, he is our president, and he’s doing a wonderful job. Citizens do the same. He’s far better then some we’ve had. Everyone was outrageous with him before he became president. Grow up all of you .What is this teaching our children? What is all this showing the world? This is all totally disgraceful.

    Thank God for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court! This is the most important election in all of my 65 years! We must get this demi-god/dictator wanna-be out of office. Him and his dangerous cronies are ruining our country.

    Why extend the voting by only 3 days? Why not 10 days? 30 days?

    Every person seated on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court should be impeached and removed over this ruling. They are part of the ongoing attempted coup d’etat.
