Pennsylvania Counties Help Voters Correct Mistakes in Mail-in Ballots After Ruling

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.9

On Monday workers in some of Pennsylvania’s largest counties helped voters correct dates or missing signatures on the envelopes of mail-in ballots.  This comes after the state Supreme Court ordered that mail in ballots may not be counted if they lack accurate handwritten dates on the exterior envelopes.  The extent of the issue across the state has not been determined by the Department of State, but the agency has requested that counties provide data showing the numbers by party affiliation.   Some counties are not allowing voters to correct their mistakes, according to officials.
