Texas Attorney General Sues Pennsylvania And Other Battleground Election States In Scramble Before Tuesday Deadline


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin the United States Supreme Court as Tuesday marks the ‘safe harbor’ deadline across the country.

The safe harbor deadline falls six days before electors cast their votes in the electoral college and it is the day that states who haven’t certified ballots normally work to clear up any outstanding legal challenges remaining in the election.

The act was established to make sure any fights over electors were resolved in order to make sure that votes cast by the chosen electors will be ‘conclusive.’ In other words, it is a safeguard so that election results will not be overturned.

The deadline comes before the Electoral College casts their ballots December 14 and before Congress counts electoral votes January 6.
