The Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed Monday’s Trump campaign lawsuits, which called for more than 8,000 missing votes to be fired in Allegheny County.
In five lawsuits, President Trump’s attorneys asked the courts to discard ballots that lacked information such as a handwritten name or address or the date the ballot was signed. The Supreme Court of the state ruled that the ballot papers should be considered valid.
“Here, we conclude that although non-compliance with the handwritten name, address or date on the back of the outer envelope in the voter declaration, although a technical violation of the Electoral Code, does not justify the wholesale loss of thousands of Pennsylvania voters,” the decision said.

In addition, the state Supreme Court overturned the lower-level court ruling, which invalidated 2,349 ballots due to missing information in Allegheny County. The decision was a step backwards for Trump as the state’s counties make progress in their efforts to justify the Pennsylvania vote.
“The Trump campaign tried to throw ballot papers away from those eligible to vote. Guess? They just lost in the PA Supreme Court. Again, ”said Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro in response to the decision.
President Trump has yet to acknowledge his defeat against President-elect Joe Biden, who, with his expected victories in Pennsylvania and Nevada, has exceeded the 270 election thresholds required to fill the White House earlier this month. Trump’s attorneys have argued that Republican pollsters have not been allowed adequate access to oversee the vote-counting practice and claim there are frauds in postal votes.
On Saturday, a federal judge blocked the Trump campaign’s offer to block the verification of the Pennsylvania vote amid allegations of voting irregularities. In a restraining order, Matthew Brann, a judge in the U.S. District Court, dismissed the challenge and said Trump’s attorneys had not provided evidence to support their allegations.
