Pennsylvania Appeals Court upheld a lawsuit filed by U.S. Presidential Election Staff Donald Trump, who demanded that some of the mailed ballots not be included in the final results of the presidential election, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
These are ballots of voters who voted by mail and did not have time to confirm their identity by November 9. Just before the election the state secretary Kathy Bukwar extended the deadline until November 12. Trump’s headquarters demanded that the Bukvar ruling be revoked.
As a result, on Thursday, the Pennsylvania Court of Appeals ruled that the secretary did not have the necessary authority to extend the deadline for proof of identity. Those ballots would not be counted in the final election results.
