Pennsylvania Whistleblower Says Postal Workers Are Being Told to Backdate Mail-In Ballots to Election Day So They Will Be Counted

Headlines Politics U.S.

A whistleblower who works for the USPS in Pennsylvania, says workers are being told to continue picking mail-in ballots up days after Election Day, and to backdate them so they will be accepted and counted.

“Ballots that are coming in today, tomorrow, yesterday, are all supposed to be postmarked the 3rd,” the whistleblower said yesterday. “They still want us to pick up ballots tomorrow (Friday the 6th).”

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled last month even ballots that are not postmarked by Election Day should still count if they are received by Friday, Nov. 6. They should enjoy “a presumption that they were mailed by Election Day,” the Court wrote in its opinion.

A Michigan postal worker has made similar whistleblower allegations about ballots arriving late in that state as well.
