Before the votes have even been tallied, Republicans are suing to throw out mail-in ballots from the 2022 midterms. In Pennsylvania, the state Supreme Court has ruled that election officials should not count votes that didn’t have the outer envelope dated, even if the ballots arrived before Election Day. In Detroit, Michigan, there’s a case attempting to throw out absentee ballots not cast in person alongside an ID. In Wisconsin, Republicans won a ruling that will prevent some ballots from being counted when the required witness address is incomplete. These changes may sound small, but they could be enough to swing a close race. Also, if the right was willing to go this far to affect elections they don’t yet know the result of, there’s no telling what they will try to do in the races they don’t end up winning. These are the latest examples of the authoritarian slide the right wing is perpetrating against the United States.
