Abstract Plaintiffs League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh, and individual voters sued state and county officials. Plaintiffs alleged that Pennsylvania’s failure to provide, on a uniform and statewide basis, absentee and mail-in voters with any opportunity to cure signature-related deficiencies with their absentee or mail-in ballot violated the procedural due process requirement of the Fourteenth Amendment, that the unreliable signature-verification process unduly burdened the right to vote in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendment, and that Pennsylvania’s unreliable and error-prone signature-verification procedures violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Plaintiffs requested DJ and PI ordering defendants to establish a procedure4 by which voters may cure deficiencies in their absentee or mail-in ballots.
