HARRISBURG (AP) – The PA Supreme Court has ruled that officials are not allowed to count votes from mail-in or absentee ballots that lack accurate, handwritten dates on their return envelopes. The court made the unanimous ruling one week before tabulation will begin in races for governor, the U.S. Senate, and the state Legislature. The court is directing county boards of elections to “segregate and preserve” those ballots. PA counties have reported receiving more than 850,000 completed mail-in ballots from the roughly 1.4 million that voters have requested. About 70% of requests have come from Democrats and about 20% from Republicans.
