The brief sums its argument: "Election law has become so chaotic that it is now impossible for state legislatures to know in advance whether the election rules they have enacted will or will not be reimagined by courts. We need more officials like Speaker Bryan Cutler to stand up for their constituents and demand swift, thorough, and transparent election counts".
It accuses Allegheny County and Philadelphia - where Trump was badly beaten in unofficial election returns - of receiving and processing 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots without review by political parties and candidates. "There's no guarantee of that.so we have to fight this on the ground and make sure that we challenge in every place, and we are".

Trump himself said as much in the early hours of Wednesday morning, declaring, "We want the law to be used in the proper manner". Unfortunately, the verdict by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has opened up Pandora's Box.

Gore. if the election comes down to Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes, and if the number of ballots that arrived between November 3 and November 6 are large enough to affect the final tally". Most media outlets have called the state for Biden, allowing the Democrat to clinch the 270 electoral votes required to win the presidency. This is more than the number of mail-in ballots that conservatives are complaining about.
The Trump campaign has also reported evidence of voter fraud, including the allegation that some of the ballots cast in last week's election were from people who had passed away beforehand.
Counting will resume in the meantime, the court said. He has been declared the victor of the state by national news organizations. Philadelphia officials did not immediately comment.
Some observers say that if Republicans are successful in the case, known as Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar, it could flip Pennsylvania from Joe Biden to Donald Trump - one of several occurrences President Trump needs in his uphill battle to secure re-election.
Trump has refused to concede defeat in the United States presidential election, even though Biden declared victory on Saturday after U.S. media networks projected him as the victor.
"I'm sorry", Diamond responded, "then what's your problem?"
When Diamond pressed a Trump campaign lawyer on whether Republican observers are now present at the counting site, the attorney responded: "There's a non-zero number of people in the room".
