COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is now one of several republican attorneys general asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court ruling that instructed elections officials to accept ballots that had been postmarked by November 3, and arrived within three days after Election Day.

While Yost doesn’t make claims of fraud or suggest the votes shouldn’t be counted. The brief sate “Ohio is interested in this case because… Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court rewrote state law.”

The copy of the brief is available on the attorney general’s website.

Similar briefs have been filed by republican state attorneys in 10 other states including, Kentucky, Alabama, Florida, and Texas.

To date, President-elect Joe Biden has pulled ahead with more than 46,000 votes in Pennsylvania, a margin much larger than the ballots in question, which is why many experts doubt the U.S. Supreme Court will take up the case.
