Pennsylvania: State Blocked From Certifying Election Results

Pennsylvanian Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough on Wednesday blocked the state from certifying election results in the presidential race. Other state races are blocked as well, pending an evidentiary hearing to be held on Friday.

McCullough ordered the state to abstain from taking further action to certify the results of the 2020 election.

“To the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America, respondents are preliminarily enjoined from doing so, pending an evidentiary hearing to be held on Friday,” the judge wrote.

“Respondents are preliminarily enjoined from certifying the remaining results of the election, pending the evidentiary hearing.”

Pennsylvania Secretary of State on Tuesday certified the presidential and vice-presidential election.

The development comes after Republicans filed an emergency brief late on Tuesday arguing that Pennsylvania’s vote-by-mail measure, Act 77, is in violation of the PA constitution.
