JUST IN: Pennsylvania Court Invalidates 2,349 Absentee Ballots in Allegheny County Where the Voter Did Not Date Their Declaration

A Pennsylvania court on Thursday invalidated 2,349 absentee ballots in Allegheny County where the voter didn’t date their declaration.

Commonwealth Court Judge P. Kevin Brobson on Thursday reversed a lower court judge and directed the “Elections Board to exclude the challenged 2,349 ballots from the certified returns of election for the County of Allegheny….”

“…[There] is an obvious and salutary purpose behind the requirement that a voter date the declaration. The date provides a measure of security, establishing the date on which the elector actually executed the ballot in full, ensuring their desire to cast it in lieu of appearing in person at a polling place. The presence of the date also establishes a point in time against which to measure the elector’s eligibility to cast the ballot, as reflected in the body of the declaration itself,” the judge wrote.
