Attorney General Alan Wilson joins Attorneys General coalition in filing amicus brief in PA Supreme Court voting case
COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)– South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announced Monday that he joined a coalition of 10 state attorneys general in filing an amicus brief urging the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to reverse its decision allowing mail-in ballots to be received three days after Election Day without a postmark. The full brief can be found here. The coalition is led by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.
“Regardless of your political beliefs, I think we can all agree that states need to follow their election laws,” Attorney General Wilson said. “We’re just asking that all legal votes be counted and illegal votes not be counted.”
The brief argues that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overstepped its authority, that mail-in ballots can create a risk of voter fraud and the court’s decision furthers this risk of fraud.
The South Carolina attorney general joins attorneys general from Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, Missouri, South Dakota, Texas, and Florida in the brief.
