“A group of Republicans in Wisconsin has desperately sought volunteers to call supporters of President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania and urge them to mail in absentee ballots by Friday — even as the president himself rails against late votes and the ongoing vote count. Only votes cast by Nov. 3 are legal according to Pennsylvania and federal election laws. Trump himself has described any effort to vote after Tuesday as clear election fraud.”
“The group, which involves Republicans in Kenosha, appeared to be trying to take advantage of an effort by Pennsylvania to count all absentee votes mailed by Nov. 3 even if received up to three days later. Under a federal court ruling upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, absentee ballots received by 5 p.m. Friday can be counted in Pennsylvania. That ruling said ballots received by that point without postmarks, or with illegible postmarks, will be considered to have been mailed in time ‘unless a preponderance of the evidence demonstrates that it was mailed after Election Day.’ An email obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel sent at 5:19 p.m. Thursday by Kenosha for Trump is headlined ‘Volunteers Urgently Needed.’ It reads: ‘Trump Victory urgently needs volunteers to make phone calls to Pennsylvania Trump supporters to return their absentee ballots. These phone calls will help President Trump win the election!'” – Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
