Civil rights organizations stand up for Pennsylvania voters against attempt to block valid ballots

“Voters’ voices must be heard, whether they vote in person, by mail, or needed to cast a provisional ballot.

But it’s important to know that by extending the deadline to receive voted mail in ballots, we will need to be even more patient in waiting for the results. It’s important that every single vote is counted as long as it is received by the deadline."
