Mail-in ballot generic

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — With the Trump campaign’s lawsuit in federal court on hold until October, it could be up to Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court to settle crucial questions of election law in the presidential battleground, including whether ballots mailed without secrecy envelopes can be counted.

The court could decide as early as Monday whether to take over and fast-track a state Democratic Party lawsuit that asks justices to order counties to count those ballots in the Nov. 3 presidential election. It is a gray area of the law, and Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa said the number of votes returned without secrecy envelopes is a significant number and needs to be resolved.
