The Supreme Court rejected efforts of reversing election results in Pennsylvania despite President Trump’s efforts of winning another term. Mike Kelly, Republican Rep. brought this lawsuit arguing in favor of a 2019 law that declared mail-in voting as unconstitutional. So the ballots cast by the mail should be declared void.
The application seeking injunctive relief which was presented to Justice Alito stands denied. Mike along with other lawmakers moved the court on 21st November requesting to either reject over 2.5 million votes by mail or to allow the lawmakers for selecting presidential electors.
