A Pennsylvania judge has ordered that segregated ballots should not be counted, ruling that the State Secretary Kathy Boockvar “lacked statutory authority” to override the election law.

Based on the secretary of state’s “interpretation and application” of the state Supreme Court’s decision in Pennsylvania Democratic Party v. Boockvar, President Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt concluded that Boockvar “lacked statutory authority” to issue the Nov. 1 guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections, purportedly changing the deadline of the state’s election code “for certain electors to verify proof of identification.”
