RNC and Trump Campaign Win Pennsylvania Voter ID Case

WASHINGTON – In a huge victory for election integrity, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania sided with the Republican National Committee and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. in the challenge to Secretary Boockvar’s unlawful deadline extension for absentee voters to provide missing proof of identification. The court ruled that Secretary Boockvar “lacked the statutory authority” to unilaterally extend the deadline set by law and ordered that the segregated ballots should not be counted.

“This was a cut and dry brazen power grab by a Democrat official trying to tip the scales in Joe Biden’s favor, and we’re glad the court ruled in our favor.  We will continue to shine light on these unlawful incidents and voter irregularities that have happened in Pennsylvania and across the country until the results up and down the ballot are final and Americans are confident in the outcome of this election.”– RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel

Background: 

In the eleventh hour, Secretary Boockvar re-wrote Pennsylvania Election Code to move the deadline to provide missing proof of identification for absentee voters.  The RNC and Trump campaign filed a lawsuit challenging this flagrant disregard of state law, and last week, the court enforced the proper statutory deadline and ordered that those ballots be segregated and not counted.

The RNC and its Republican allies will continue to fight back against Democrat efforts to move the goalposts and count unlawful ballots.  The RNC and Trump campaign have over 500 volunteer lawyers and multiple firms engaged in Pennsylvania and are fully prepared to litigate as necessary to ensure the integrity of the process.
