Washington: The Pennsylvania Republican Party asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday to stop counting late votes in the state because Democrat Joe Biden took the lead and is preparing to defeat President Donald Trump.
If Biden wins Pennsylvania, he will win the presidency.
The final appeal on the emergency injunction requires the court to freeze the processing of thousands of mailed ballots arriving after Tuesday’s election day-most people believe this is in favor of Biden-Republicans should disqualify them.
The petition requires the court to order Pennsylvania election officials to seize all ballots received after Tuesday and take no action against them.
The petition states that the Republican Party can ask the court to review the pre-election challenge to the Pennsylvania government’s decision to accept late ballots.
“Given the results of the November 3, 2020 general election, the vote in Pennsylvania may well determine the next president of the United States,” they said.
“It is unclear whether all 67 county boards of elections are segregating late-arriving ballots.”
Republicans have been fighting for a decision in the state for several months. The decision was postmarked and sent on November 3 and arrived within three days of election day, that is, if they Arrived before Friday.
The state Supreme Court ruled that the judgment was legal and then appealed to the Supreme Court in the federal system.
On October 19, the U.S. High Court, which was vacant at the time, refused to accept the case, dividing conservatives and liberals 4 to 4.
But it also stated that the case may be accepted after the vote. After Trump’s nominated conservative Amy Coney Barrett (Amy Coney Barrett) joined the conference in late October, there are now nine members.
The Republican request did not provide any evidence that votes have not been segregated, but he said that without the intervention of the Supreme Court, the Pennsylvania Secretary of State can modify the guidelines based on 67 county councils.
If the court does issue a suspension and accepts the case, it may rule that overdue ballots are invalid, and the state is currently in isolation from others.
But it may be no different-the number of delayed votes may be significantly less than Biden’s leadership of Trump in the state.
