Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania threatened to impeach two Democratic election officials in Philadelphia, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The two election officials voted to count the undated ballots, which Republicans say violates a state Supreme Court ruling.
But other counties are doing the same and have not been warned, the Inquirer reported.
Republican state legislators are threatening to impeach Democratic officials in Philadelphia for voting to count undated mail ballots, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Elections officials in the city voted 2-1 to count the mail ballots without dates in the tally of votes in a recent primary election.
Republican commissioner Al Schmidt was the lone objector and said that a state Supreme Court ruling from 2020 requires that all envelopes must be signed and dated when returning ballots.
Pennsylvania House Speaker Bryan Cutler and seven other Republican House leaders sent a letter to the two Democratic city commissioners that voted to count the ballots, threatening to impeach them if they continue to count the ballots.
Several other counties in the state are also counting undated ballots, the Inquirer reported: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery.
Republican lawmakers haven't warned the other counties, according to the Inquirer.
