Justice Alito blocked appeal to count undated ballots in Pennsylvania

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito blocked a ruling by an appeals court that would have allowed undated ballots to be counted in the state of Pennsylvania.

According to Breitbart News, the conservative Supreme Court Justice issued a stay order Tuesday that blocked a decision by a lower court to require the counting of undated ballots in the Pennsylvania elections.

“A state lawsuit challenging a 2021 local election in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, involved voters who submitted mail-in or absentee ballots without including the date. Pennsylvania law requires that the voter both sign and date his or her ballot,” said Breitbart contributor Ken Klukowski, an election law attorney.

“The matter eventually ended up in federal court because one provision of federal voting-rights law, 52 U.S.C. § 10101, purports to limit what sort of information a state can require on a state ballot. A federal district judge ruled in favor of the state law.”

From Klukowski:

“While a local election in the Keystone State may not typically be a topic of national news, this ruling also has significant implications for other races. There are hotly contested races for governor and U.S. senator in the state. Currently, the top two candidates for the Republican nomination in the U.S. Senate race, Mehmet Oz and David McCormick, are only a few hundred votes apart. And of course, Pennsylvania is a critical state these days in presidential elections as well.

“On Tuesday, Alito issued a stay blocking the Third Circuit’s decision. The matter is likely to be referred to the full Supreme Court now to determine whether to continue the stay. If that stay is extended by a majority of the court, it should be expected that the applicant in the lawsuit will promptly file a petition for a writ of certiorari to ask the Supreme Court to take up the case for argument later this year.”

It is as yet unknown how the Supreme Court will rule on the issue, as the stay is only temporary and the justices could still decline to hear the case, but it is clear that the importance of the state’s election integrity is at an all-time high.
