WASHINGTON, DC – The Honest Elections Project’s Executive Director, Jason Snead, released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision denying a stay in Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar:

“The Supreme Court’s unwillingness to restore Pennsylvania’s legal ballot deadline is a disappointment for voters. It will certainly make headlines, but it is neither a license for other courts to modify election deadlines, nor a resolution of this crucial issue. There are clearly sufficient votes on the Court to hear this case should a cert petition be filed. And other cases, including an HEP-supported lawsuit in the Eighth Circuit to restore Minnesota’s deadline, are working their way through the courts. In fact, just days ago, the Michigan Court of Appeals reinstated that state’s statutory deadline. We look forward to more such victories on the merits.”
