One of the issues that conservatives cried foul about in 2020, was the relaxing of laws around mail-in ballots and absentee ballots.
The changes were made illegally in some cases and made voter fraud much easier.
Now in Pennsylvania at least, one high court has said no more counting undated ballots.

Pennsylvania court says undated ballots won’t be counted as RNC claims ‘massive’ legal victory
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has banned the counting of undated or misdated absentee ballots in the upcoming midterm election.
In an order issued Tuesday, the court told the Pennsylvania county boards of elections “to refrain from counting any absentee and mail-in ballots received for the November 8, 2022 general election that are contained in undated or incorrectly dated outer envelopes.”
The court said it was “evenly divided” on the issue of whether failing to count the undated ballots is a constitutional violation, and so it ordered that all the misdated or undated ballots be segregated and preserved by the county boards of elections.
Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), reacted to the court order in a Tuesday evening tweet, claiming a “massive” legal victory. “The PA Supreme Court agrees with us that incorrectly or undated mail ballots can not be counted in next week’s elections,” McDaniel tweeted. “Republicans went to court. Now Democrats have to follow the law.”
The RNC, the National Republican Congressional Committee and the Pennsylvania GOP filed the lawsuit on Oct. 16, arguing that the state is illegally dodging state law and a Supreme Court ruling by saying it will count undated absentee ballots.
This is great news for conservatives.
The PA Supreme Court agrees with us that incorrectly or undated mail ballots can not be counted in next week’s elections.
Republicans went to court. Now Democrats have to follow the law.

There is still a lot of work to be done on this issue.
