Davis campaign plans lawsuit to challenge state absentee law, count late arriving ballots

The last senate race still being counted is going to court.

Rep. Tina Davis’s (D-Bucks) campaign for the 6th Senatorial District said Thursday they planned to pursue a lawsuit to demand that 192 absentee ballots that arrived after the state’s early deadline be counted.

The suit’s logic is similar to a suit filed this week by the American Civil Liberties Union state chapter over Pennsylvania absentee voting laws.
