The Trump Campaign sues county election boards in Pennsylvania

The suit stems from mail-in drop-off sites for ballots in the June 2 primary.
President Trump's re-election campaign, the National Republican Party and 4 western Pennsylvania members of Congress sued to force changes to how the state collects and counts its mail in ballots under revamped rules.

The federal lawsuit, filed in Pittsburgh, claims that as voters jumped to make use of the greatly broadened eligibility for mail in ballots during the June 2nd primary, practices ran against state law and the federal Constitution.

More than 1.5 million Pennsylvanians voted by absentee ballot earlier this month.
