The Trump Campaign and the Republican National Committee file lawsuits against Pennsylvania election officials in an attempt to remove mail-in voting as an option in the 2020 election.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants have “sacrificed the sanctity of in-person voting at the altar of un-monitored mail-in voting,” exponentially enhancing the threat that fraudulent or otherwise ineligible ballots will be cast and counted in the upcoming general election.

As the case progresses, the campaign demands that all drop-off boxes for absentee ballots be removed.

On October 10, a judge dismisses the case.

J. Nicholas Ranjan, U.S district judge for western Pennsylvania, said in his ruling dismissing the lawsuit that the Trump campaign’s claims of potential voter fraud were speculative.

In a written ruling, the judge stated: “They must at least prove that such fraud is ‘certainly impending’. They haven’t met that burden.”

Earlier this year the judge asked the Trump campaign to provide evidence of actual fraud, but the campaign declined, arguing it did not have to do so in order to win the case.
