A Pennsylvania court has ordered the state to halt work certifying elections until Friday, when it will hold a hearing on a lawsuit trying to have all mail-in votes disqualified.
Rep. Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell, and eight other petitioners claim last month’s decision to allow all voters to use mail-in ballots was unconstitutional.
Allies of President Trump have suffered setback after setback in their efforts to exclude mail-in ballots and overturn election results around the country. But on Wednesday, Commonwealth Court Judge Patricia A. McCullough entered a preliminary order temporarily halting certification.
If states fail to certify election results by December 14, it will be up to the state legislature to appoint an elector to determine the 46th President of the United States. Currently, the Republican Party controls the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
