A Minor Win for the Trump Team in Pennsylvania

The Trump campaign won a minor victory today in the multifaceted post-election litigation ongoing in Pennsylvania. A state court ruled that the state government lacked the authority to extend by three days (i.e., until today, November 12) the statutory six-day post-election deadline for voters to verify proof of identification. Consequently, if these voters did not verify their identification by November 9, their votes may not be counted. The decision by President Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt of the Commonwealth Court is expected to affect very few votes. As I write this, presumptive President-elect Biden leads President Trump by about 55,000 votes in Pennsylvania.
