A Pennsylvania judge has ruled that some mail-in ballots belonging to first-time voters in the state who hadn’t confirmed their identity before Nov. 9 will not be counted, in a small victory for the Trump campaign, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Commonwealth Court President Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt ruled on Thursday that Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar did not have the required authority when she issued a guidance saying that these ballots should be counted if the voters’ identification can be confirmed by Nov. 12.

“If the deadline is calculated as the statute is written, then as it pertains to the November 3, 2020 General Election, this deadline for voters to resolve proof of identification issues is Monday, November 9, 2020, not November 12, 2020,’’ the Trump campaign wrote in a court filing, with which Leavitt concurred.

While it’s unclear how many ballots will be disqualified because of the ruling — the Pennsylvania Department of State declined to comment — it is likely to be a small number.
