Pennsylvania Ballot Receipt Deadline Challenge

Bognet v. Boockvar

Lawsuit filed by a Republican congressional candidate and individual voters challenging the three day extension of the ballot receipt deadline. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) intervened in the case. The district court denied the plaintiffs’ requested injunctive relief, finding that they raised their issues too close to the election, and the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed. The Republicans petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court, which denied their petition and remanded the case with instructions to dismiss it as moot.
