DNC, PA Dems, DSCC, and DCCC Joint Statement on Pennsylvania Mail Ballot Ruling
September 30, 2022
DNC Chair Jaime Harrison, Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chair and State Senator Sharif Street, DSCC Chair Gary Peters, and DCCC Chair Sean Patrick Maloney released the following statement after successfully blocking a Republican lawsuit seeking to prevent counties from notifying and giving voters the opportunity to fix errors in their mail-in ballots:
“Today’s ruling is a big win for Pennsylvania. Make no mistake: Republicans tried to roll back Pennsylvanians’ voting rights by arguing that voters should be denied the opportunity to make sure their ballots are counted – but we went to court to stop them.
“While Republicans are trying to make it harder for Americans to exercise the sacred right to vote, Democrats remain committed to standing up for every eligible voter’s right to cast their ballot and have it be counted.”
