From President Donald J. Trump:
In 2019 Pennsylvania’s Republican-controlled legislature voted to move the state to “no excuse” mail-in voting. A new lawsuit – Doug McLinko vs Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of State and Veronica Degraffenreid – challenges the legislation passed by the Pennsylvania state legislature and alleges the change to mail-in voting was unconstitutional. The results of the suit could have major implications for future elections and potentially for ongoing efforts to challenge the 2020 election results.
The plaintiff in the case is Doug McLinko, a member of the Bradford County Board of Elections and a Bradford County Commissioner. “As a member of the Board of Elections, McLinko must oversee the lawful administration of all aspects of elections, including voter registration, the voting process, and tabulation of votes. He must also certify the results of all primary and general elections in the county to the Secretary of State.” He contends in his suit that, because the move to mail-in voting was done unconstitutionally he was placed in the untenable position of being required by the state to “act unlawfully.”
