Pennsylvania requests permission to continue processing late ballots

The authorities of the American state of Pennsylvania asked the Supreme Court of the United States to reject the Republicans’ demand to stop processing the ballots that had been filled in and entered the election commissions after election day on November 3. This was reported by the NBC television company on Saturday, November 7.

The state administration believes that this requirement of Republican Party representatives may adversely affect the ability to ensure the work of the Pennsylvania Legislative Assembly by December 1, 2020, as required by the state constitution.

Earlier, the Republicans in the lawsuit demanded from the Supreme Court of the United States to separate and not count the ballots in Pennsylvania, received after election day. The Supreme Court is required to decide whether the ballots are legal.

At their request, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the ballots in Pennsylvania received after the country’s general election day on November 3 should be segregated and counted separately.
