Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections


Monday, October 17, 2022

Washington, D.C. – Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (“RITE”) is supporting several
concerned voters who have filed a petition with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to enforce state
election law regarding undated and incorrectly dated mail-in ballots. The Pennsylvania Supreme
Court has already held that state law prohibits counting these ballots. And just last week, the U.S.
Supreme Court invalidated a court ruling that had interpreted federal law to require them to be
counted. Despite these rulings, the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth responded by
instructing election officials that both state and federal law still requires them to count undated
and incorrectly dated mail-in ballots.


RITE is filing this petition to prevent Pennsylvania bureaucrats from flouting the law and to
keep them accountable for administering fair elections across the Commonwealth. 

Derek Lyons, RITE’s President and CEO, issued the following statement:


                                    RITE is proud to support Pennsylvania voters in their effort to ensure their
                                    elections are conducted in accordance with the rule of law. The law of the
                                    Commonwealth is clear that undated and incorrectly dated mail-in ballots must
                                    not be counted. And after the U.S. Supreme Court’s action last week, no federal
                                    law says otherwise. When voters cast a ballot, they should be confident that
                                    election officials are protecting the integrity of elections, not abusing their
                                    discretion to chase partisan outcomes.

Unlike Fauci, I follow science. As a doctor, I’m well aware of the high suicide rates for transgender individuals.
