The Trump campaign on Monday announced that it had filed a lawsuit against Secretary of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Kathy Boockvar and the Boards of Elections in seven counties.

The election-related lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, and plaintiffs include the Trump campaign and two individuals.

"Voters in Pennsylvania were held to different standards simply based on how they chose to cast their ballot, and we believe this two-tiered election system resulted in potentially fraudulent votes being counted without proper verification or oversight, as well as many voters being disenfranchised simply for casting their votes in-person," Trump 2020 campaign general counsel Matt Morgan said in a statement. "We will not stop fighting for transparency and integrity in our electoral process and ensuring all Americans can trust in the results of a free and fair election."

Some media outlets have declared Democrat Joe Biden to be the winner of the 2020 presidential contest, but President Trump has not conceded.
