  • It is the seventh demand of President Trump

Trump campaign counted votes Pennsylvania. The campaign of President Donald Trump on Thursday asked a federal court to stop the counting of all votes in Pennsylvania, and a small victory was scored when another court ordered to keep some ballots separate in that state.

The new one demand Trump’s election, the seventh he has filed so far in key election states, is related to another lawsuit he filed Wednesday to get his campaign watchers to more closely monitor vote counting in Pennsylvania.

A court state of Pennsylvania on Thursday gave the reason to the president and asked that those observers be allowed closer to the tables where the calculation is carried out, but the Trump campaign denounced hours later that they were not being guaranteed that access.

With that argument, the president’s campaign asked a federal court in Pennsylvania to issue an emergency order to prevent “any ballot from being counted” in that state while there are no observers from his team present.

Furthermore, in response to another campaign lawsuit, a state judge ordered Pennsylvania counties to keep separate ballots for those first-time voting citizens who have not yet produced the necessary identification.

Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt agreed with the Trump campaign in its argument that the state of Pennsylvania did not act properly by extending until November 12 the period that those voters had to prove their identity data, and shortened that period to next November 9th.

It’s unclear how many votes that order affects, but ballots that meet those conditions should be kept out of the way until the case is decided, at a time when the outcome in Pennsylvania is tight.

For now, however, the scrutiny has not stopped in Pennsylvania nor has any part of the count that has been done so far in that hinge state been invalidated.

Trump’s path to re-election is complex, since in addition to maintaining Pennsylvania, he has to take the other three states that remain at stake: Georgia, North Carolina and Nevada.

The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits to challenge scrutiny in three other key states, Nevada, Michigan and Georgia, although in the latter two territories the courts have dismissed their claims; while in Wisconsin, the president’s team has called for a recount of the votes.

Pennsylvania Warns It May “Take Time” to Know Who Wins Election

The official in charge of the electoral process in Pennsylvania, Kathy Boockvar, warned this Thursday that knowing the winner of the presidential elections in that state may take longer than expected.

“It is very tight in Pennsylvania, it may take longer to find out who the winner is,” Boockvar, who holds the post of Pennsylvania secretary of state, said at a press conference, recalling that “the closer the election, the longer it takes. ”.

At the time of the press conference, the president, Donald Trump, led the count with 50 percent of the votes compared to 48.8 percent of his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, with a narrow margin of 78 thousand votes, when they were missing by still count about 326 thousand.

Shortly after that, that margin was shortened to just over 75,000.

Boockvar, who in an interview this morning with CNN ventured to say that the winner could be known this Thursday, was more cautious at the press conference by insisting that “most” of the votes will have been counted before Friday.

“The overwhelming majority of the ballots will have been counted before Friday. In fact, we have already counted the overwhelming majority of the votes, but as it is a close election, it is not yet clear who the winner is, ”he insisted.

However, he affirmed that Pennsylvania is “in the final stretch” of the process.

Pennsylvania has the country in suspense, as it is the most important of the key states in which the winner of the presidential election remains to be known.

Should Biden win in Pennsylvania, he will be declared the winner of the election and the new president-elect, although Trump’s Republicans have filed several claims for the counting of votes.

Trump’s path to re-election is more complex, since in addition to maintaining Pennsylvania, he has to take the other three states that remain at stake: Georgia, North Carolina and Nevada.

While the Trump campaign called for a countdown in Pennsylvania, judges in Georgia and Michigan quickly dismissed lawsuits brought by President Donald Trump’s campaign on Thursday, undermining a legal strategy to attack the integrity of the electoral process in states where the result could mean the defeat of the president.

Meanwhile, Democratic candidate Joe Biden was approaching the 270 electoral votes he needs to win the presidential election.

Biden’s campaign attorney, Bob Bauer, said the Republicans’ legal actions were without merit.

“I want to underline that, for your purposes, these demands do not have to have merit. That is not the purpose … It is to create an opportunity for them to send a false message about what is happening in the electoral process, “Bauer said Thursday, accusing the Trump campaign of” continually alleging irregularities, system failures and fraud without any foundation ”.
