Politico: Only 10k ballots received after Nov 3, crushing GOP hopes

The number is far too small to undermine President-elect Joe Biden’s margin of victory in a critical battleground state.

Politico: Pennsylvania’s chief election officer announced on Tuesday that around 10,000 ballots were received between the close of polls on Election Day and the evening of Nov. 6 — a number far too small to undermine President-elect Joe Biden’s margin of victory in a critical battleground state.

The approximately 10,000 mail ballots are at the center of a case in front of the Supreme Court that President Donald Trump and his allies have pushed for, as they advance a broader strategy that’s less about actually making a cohesive legal argument than it is about undermining trust in the democratic process.

The case is perhaps the most prominent current lawsuit backed by Trump, as he seeks to undermine confidence in Biden’s victory. Trump and his allies have baselessly claimed that there was widespread election fraud, a charge that they have not substantiated to any significant degree.

Both before and after the election, election administrators and voting experts rejected the premise of widespread fraud in American elections, saying that when it does occur, it is isolated and not a sign of a systemic problem.

The New York Times surveyed election officials in nearly every state after the election, and said that “none reported any major voting issues.”

In Pennsylvania, mail ballots are typically due by the close of polls on Election Day, regardless of when they’re postmarked. The state Supreme Court extended the deadline in the state following a Democratic-backed lawsuit, citing the coronavirus pandemic and deliverability concerns within the U.S. Postal Service.
