Pennsylvania: Mail ballots can’t be discarded over signature

Original Article

Posted By: envirodude, 9/16/2020 3:31:39 PM

With concerns rising in Pennsylvania that tens of thousands of mail-in ballots will be discarded in the presidential election over technicalities, officials in the presidential battleground told counties they aren’t allowed to reject a ballot solely because an election official believes a signature doesn’t match the one in the voter’s file. The new guidance from Pennsylvania’s Department of State — that state law does not allow counties to set aside mail-in ballots based on their signature analysis — prompted the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania and the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh to drop a lawsuit in federal court Monday.


The plans to steal the election are being made and carried out in the courts

So if the signatures don't match, how do you know the legally credentialed person is voting? Yeah, I'd be contesting that in court.

A ruling which proves, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the dems will stuff ballot boxes until the needed counts are made. It also will reduce every future election held in Pennsylvania to the same barrel-bottom standards as the worst third-world country...Sudan or Venezuela come to mind. Even India makes a voter stick his thumb in a pot of purple ink so at least he can't vote twice....but not Pennsylvania.

This is such a ridiculously subjective 19th century rule for voter verification that it could only be the brainchild of big government. This is the same incompetency that resulted in the Florida "hanging chads" idiocy, the Iowa caucus debacle, and the blatant fraud in New York and New Jersey primaries. I have voted absentee for years in California but I have literally lost all confidence that this process is sound and will be voting early in person this year.

So, if the signature on the ballot has the wrong name or the name is spelled wrong, it is valid? So, if the signature on the ballot is an "X" it is still valid? So if the signature on the ballot is very clearly left-handed, but the original record signature is not, it is still valid? So, if the ballot and signature is for a clearly false name (i.e., Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Bugs Bunny, Thoreau, William Shakespeare)? So, if the signature on the ballot is made via a rubber stamp and ink pad, it is still valid? This is utter lunacy. People of good faith can spot an obvious forgery and don't need to be handwriting expert to do so.

I'm sure my 94 yr old father's signature wouldn't match the one on file from his registration in 2001. That being said, I personally want one day only voting, no early voting, purple thumbs/verified ID. Notarized absentee only for mail in. I'll admit I don't know the answer to those in assisted living/rehab that can't get to the polls, but I sure don't want people coming in to 'help' them. I used to work with a woman whose signature looked like the infinity sign, had no match to any known word, let alone her name....but it was her signature.

Actually, this is not a bad ruling. All the judge said was that they cannot DISCARD the ballot. The order does not require them to count it. Once the ballot has been discarded there is no way to come back and make sure that the reason given for discarding it is supported by what can be seen on the ballot.

#6, let's consider the history. When the U.S. was founded, and voters went to the polls - 1789 - a voter could not display a driver's license, or a social security card, or any photo ID. Nothing existed, except his signature.

A Pine High School Senior is taking the Washington Parish School Board to court after the superintendent ruled a parking space mural of President Donald Trump was too political. Ned Thomas was participating in the school’s “Seniors Paint Your Parking Spot” program and had his design approved by the principal, only to have it painted over after a paid artist completed the image.

A Mississippi church is suing the city of Greenville after police shut down its drive-in service this week in accordance with a city ban on the practice amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Attorneys with the Alliance Defending Freedom filed the lawsuit Friday on behalf of the Temple Baptist Church. The filing challenges Greenville Mayor Errick Simmons' April 7 executive order that prohibits drive-in church services until a statewide shelter-in-place order is lifted. The suit comes after eight uniformed Greenville police officers reportedly issued $500 tickets to congregants who refused to leave a parking lot where a drive-in service was being conducted Wednesday, the ADF said in a statement announcing the legal challenge.

The agency allowed for the drugs to be "donated to the Strategic National Stockpile to be distributed and prescribed by doctors to hospitalized teen and adult patients with COVID-19, as appropriate, when a clinical trial is not available or feasible," HHS said in a statement, announcing that Sandoz donated 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine to the stockpile and Bayer donated 1 million doses of chloroquine.

PROVIDENCE, RI — The number of cases of the new coronavirus spiked by 33 cases on Thursday, Governor Gina Raimondo announced. Starting immediately, anyone coming into the state from New York state will be mandated to self-quarantine for 14 days, the governor said. Nearly half of the nation's cases of COVID-19 are from New York, particularly the New York City metro area, Raimondo said, and the number of cases is rising every day. Because of its geographical proximity to Rhode Island, this measure is necessary to keep the infection rate down, she said.

Clarence Thomas, the second African-American ever appointed to the US Supreme Court, has become a key figure in Trump's America. Justice Thomas has voted consistently with conservatives on issues of abortion, gun rights, voting rights, the welfare state, and — perhaps surprisingly — race. But he hasn't always been a leading figure on the right. In fact, he was once a radical leftist and Black Power activist. Political scientist Corey Robin says Justice Thomas was once a "pretty dedicated black militant" and "a devotee of Malcolm X". And according to Robin, who has studied hundreds of the justice's Supreme Court opinions, his conservative ideology is not entirely contradictory to his radical roots.

In a letter to lawmakers released Wednesday, the prime minister said he "spoke to Her Majesty The Queen to request an end to the current parliamentary session." He said an integral feature to the legislative program will be the introduction of a bill to leave the European Union and "to secure its passage" before Oct. 31.

Speaking to MSNBC’s Craig Melvin on Monday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) faced pushback after repeatedly saying “Forget him” while answering a question about countering the commander-in-chief’s rhetoric and narrative. Melvin noted to the nation’s highest elected Democrat that, “with all due respect, you just said, ‘Forget him.'” “Yeah, forget him,” she responded.

Pennsylvania’s highest court gave the Democratic Party a series of victories Thursday, including one allowing repairs to glitches and gray areas in the battleground state’s fledgling mail-in voting law and another that kicked the Green Party’s presidential candidate off the November ballot. The state Supreme Court, which has a 5-2 Democratic majority, granted the Democratic Party’s request to order a three-day extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day deadline to count mailed-in ballots. And it ruled that the Green Party’s candidate for president did not strictly follow procedures for getting on the ballot in November and cannot appear on it.
