Republicans have proposed a wide-ranging series of changes to Pennsylvania election laws, including many that would make it more difficult to vote.
Counties received more than 550,000 mailed ballots, according to the Department of State. The agency said in-person turnout Tuesday was typical.
As the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania Legislature works to pass voter suppression laws, Democrats in Congress have one chance to stop the assault on voting rights.
“They have failed to allege that even a single mail-in ballot was fraudulently cast or counted,” one judge wrote.
“The Court must be flexible in favor of the right to vote,” the judge said.
The mail-in ballots could make a difference in the 45th state Senate District race, where incumbent Democrat Jim Brewster and Republican Nicole Ziccarelli are separated by a few thousand votes.
The Philadelphia DA said his office will ask for both Virginia men to be held without bail, "as this alarming incident is still very much under investigation regarding additional charges."
