The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) released another research brief on the 2020 election Thursday. The PILF claimed that more than 440,000 mail ballots in Pennsylvania “went missing or undeliverable” in a state Joe Biden won by a margin of just 80,555 votes, according to official state numbers.
PILF is interestingly chaired by former Democratic Representative Cleta Mitchell (OK).
“The 2020 General Election set a record in Pennsylvania for rejected mail ballots by election officials. Also, the state lost track of more ballots than the difference in votes between Trump and Biden,” PILF said in a statement that accompanied the release of the report.
Their report goes on to say that a total of 3.1 million ballots were mailed to Pennsylvania voters in 2020. Of these, what happened to 425,606 of these mail ballots is “unknown,” according to data provided by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and analyzed by PILF.
In addition, 15,175 were determined to be “undeliverable,” while 34,171 mail ballots returned by voters were rejected by election officials. A little more than 6.8 million votes were cast in the Pennsylvania 2020 presidential election.
“Pennsylvania lawmakers have serious work to do if they don’t want their election systems to resemble California or Arizona,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in the statement released by the conservative election integrity group.
On Wednesday, PILF released a research brief about 2020 election results in Georgia, which concluded, “2020: Biden won Georgia by 11k votes. 27k mail ballots bounced off bad addresses.” On August 27, PILF released a research brief about 2020 election results in Wisconsin, which concluded, “83k mail ballots went missing or undeliverable,” in that state’s election.
Earlier, on August 18, PILF released a research brief about the national 2020 election results which concluded, “nearly 15 million mail ballots went accounted for in [the] 2020 election.” PILF is expected to continue to release research briefs on mail ballot results in several additional states in the near future.
