AG Shapiro On SCOTUS Denial of Expedited Consideration on Election Case

October 28, 2020 | Topic: Peoples AG

“We applaud the Court’s decision to slow down, get to regular order, and let Pennsylvania have an election. Now we must vote and take time to count all eligible ballots.

The denial of expedited review is good for Pennsylvania voters, who will not have the rules changed on them on the eve of the election without proper review. We know this fight may not be over and we are prepared.

The Commonwealth has taken careful steps to ensure all eligible Pennsylvania votes will be counted and to stave off further anticipated legal challenges. We call on all voters to submit their mail-in ballots to a drop box or county election office as soon as possible. Pennsylvania is on pace for a record-setting level of participation in this historic election.”
