HARRISBURG (AP) – It could be up to PA’s Supreme Court to settle crucial questions of election law, 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 Democrat Party lawsuit that asks the courts to order counties to count those ballots in the Nov. 3 presidential election. It is a gray area of the law, and Senate Democrat Leader Jay Costa said the number of votes returned without secrecy envelopes is a significant number and needs to be resolved.
