Pennsylvania court allows GOP observers closer access to ballot counting, Trump campaign
Pennsylvania court rules in favor of GOP
A ruling Thursday morning by an appellate court in Pennsylvania guarantees that Republican observers can watch the ballot counts in the state, according to the Trump campaign. They had purportedly been kept as far away 100 feet.
"I can't stress enough how big a victory this is," said Justin Clark, Team Trump's deputy campaign manager and senior counsel. "For the good of the nation, every Pennsylvania county should follow the lead of this judge and provide access for observers to ensure transparency and integrity in Pennsylvania. That is the only way to ensure a fair, transparent election in which all Pennsylvania voters can have confidence their vote will count."
As a result of this legal victory, a lower court’s order has been reversed. Now, according to the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, "all candidates, watchers, or
candidate representatives" shall "be permitted to be present for the canvassing process" and "be permitted to observe all aspects of the canvassing process within 6 feet, while adhering to all COVID-19 protocols, including, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing."
