U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pennsylvania, said he wants to find out how this happened.
“It’s of great concern to me and I think it’s further evidence that the Postal Service is being led by someone who is not only in over his head, but has taken steps that undermined peoples’ right to vote,” Casey said.
The state Supreme Court has ruled that mail-in ballots arriving up to three days after the election should be counted. But the Trump campaign and the Pennsylvania GOP have appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, urging that the late ballots be tossed.
The U.S. Supreme Court has not yet decided if it will hear the appeal.
“Every voter had the same opportunity to get their ballot here by 8 p.m. on Election Day so that’s the law. Whether we should change that law going forward, that’s a discussion we can all have but you don’t get to change in the middle of the game. If it’s not here by 8 p.m. Election Day it will not count,” said state Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, R-Centre County.
