Pennsylvania Supreme Court Weighs in on State Election Law Changes

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court handed down several voting-related decisions last week. The court extended the deadline for accepting mail ballots, will allow voters to submit their ballots through drop boxes and removed the Green Party’s candidate for president from the ballot. 2020 is the first year Pennsylvanians have the option to vote by mail without needing to specify a reason. The Pennsylvania Department of State says nearly 2 million people have already asked for mail ballots for the upcoming election–and that figure is expected to grow. PA voters must register to vote by Oct. 19 to be eligible to vote in the Nov. 3 election. PA residents may register to vote online.
