Trump sues to ensure Election Day deadline for absentee votes is followed as 200K votes from ‘left-leaning’ counties outstanding

“We must remain patient as votes are tallied and races are called, and we must remain absolutely committed to ensuring that every American voter has a say in their democracy,” she wrote.

Pelosi’s excitement over a potential Biden victory comes as President Trump had announced lawsuits demanding the counting of votes in Pennsylvania and Michigan be ceased due to “irregularities” being reported. He’s also demanded a recount in Wisconsin, which Biden reportedly won by around 20,000 votes.

In Georgia, the Trump campaign filed suit to separate ballots received after 7pm on Election Day, the deadline for absentee and mail-in votes to be counted in Georgia, from those received before the deadline. Once the late absentee ballots were all accounted for, they should be stored pending “further instruction” from the court “as to their final disposition,” the campaign requested.

The president has accused his opponents multiple times of trying to “steal” the election with ballot dumps in favor or Biden. His campaign has claimed victory in not only Michigan, but also Georgia and North Carolina, neither of which have released final voting tallies.
