A Pennsylvania court has ruled late-arriving ballots should not be counted toward the final vote tally.

On Thursday a judge sided with the Trump campaign, stating that the Democrat secretary of state in Pennsylvania did not have authority to extend the deadline for mail-in ballots. The judge pointed out that only the state legislature could do such.

The ruling means late-arriving ballots shall not be counted. Separately, the Trump campaign is suing to reverse the Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision to even accept late-arriving ballots.

Meanwhile, campaign adviser and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany revealed more evidence of suspected voter fraud in The Keystone State.

In an interview Thursday, she claimed some Republican voters were not allowed to cast their ballot in-person after receiving mail-in ballots by mistake. The Republican voters said they discarded the mail-in ballots and did not use them to vote.

McEnany went on to say Republican early voters were not given the opportunity to correct mistakes on their ballots, while their Democrat counterparts were.

The Trump campaign has filed numerous lawsuits across the country in order to verify the election results.
