President Trump scored a legal victory Thursday in one of
several cases in Pennsylvania in which his campaign is challenging
the results of the presidential election.
Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt ordered that the state may not count
ballots in which the voter failed to provide proof of
identification by Nov. 9.
The judge ruled that Kathy Boockvar, the secretary of the
commonwealth, lacked the authority to overrule the state
legislature and extend the deadline to Nov. 12.
On Friday, a hearing is scheduled to take place regarding
thousands of ballots the Trump campaign claims should not have been
counted because they lacked required information.
The campaign also is awaiting action from the U.S. Supreme Court
regarding the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision to overrule the
state legislature and extend the deadline for receiving mail-in
ballots three days past Election Day.
Boockvar extended the deadline for proof of identification to
Nov. 12 after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court extended the deadline
for mail-in ballots.
