A Pennsylvania judge sided with the Trump campaign on Thursday, reversing a lower court decision by ruling to toss thousands of ballots without dates.
“A GOP win in Pennsylvania — Commonwealth Court judge ruled that 2,349 absentee ballots in Allegheny County where the voter didn’t date their declaration are invalid, reversing a lower court judge,” reported BuzzFeed News’ Zoe Tillman, Thursday evening.
Elsewhere in the state, the Trump team’s requests to toss other potentially illegal ballots have been rejected, such as the counties of Montgomery and Bucks. The president’s legal team has issued appeals in those cases.
“In Pennsylvania, the Trump campaign has withdrawn its appeal of a judge’s order rejecting their challenge to 592 absentee ballots in Montgomery County where the voter didn’t write their address when they signed the envelope declaration,” Tillman reported Thursday, adding that “a judge in Bucks County rejected the Trump campaign’s appeal of the county’s decision to count 2,117 absentee ballots with various deficiencies.”
