U.S. Election: Pennsylvania court bars counting of provisional ballots


Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Court on Thursday barred county election officials from counting provisional ballots that were cast on Election Day by voters whose absentee or mail-in ballots were received on time.

Those provisional ballots were ordered last week to be separated until the Commonwealth Court determine the validity of the votes. The case was brought by U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee.

Trump’s Democratic challenger Joe Biden has been projected to win Pennsylvania, giving him enough electoral votes to become the president-elect.
