Most of the 700,000 people in jail are still eligible to vote, because they are in pretrial detention or serving sentences for minor offenses. But few can actually do so.

Voting experts think the vast majority of ballots rejected for signature mismatch are actually valid. https://twitter.com/marceelias/status/1319691963520684033
🚨BREAKING: Pennsylvania Supreme Court rules that election officials are PROHIBITED from rejecting mail-in ballots based on signature comparison. Nor may a party "challenge based on signature analysis and comparisons."
