Kelly Statement on SCOTUS Decision in Kelly v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Feb 22, 2021

Washington, D.C. - Today, the United States Supreme Court announced that it will not hear arguments in the case of Kelly v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Representative Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) issued this statement following the announcement:

"It is astounding that our nation's highest court was unwilling to hear arguments in a case that called on the Court to require states to follow their own constitutions in the conduct of federal elections. Act 77 expressly violates the Pennsylvania Constitution and the only court to consider the merits acknowledged the strength of our argument and said we were likely to succeed. I call on the governor and the General Assembly to do the right thing by repealing the no-excuse mail-in voting system, starting the constitutional amendment process, and letting Pennsylvania voters decide the issue."
