“Curing” a ballot is a completely legal process; if a voter sends their mail ballot without a secrecy envelope or signature, an official calls to tell them they are allowed to vote by provisional ballot.

The lawsuit in Pennsylvania alleged that the election in the state was marred by a lack of transparency, the unequal “curing” of ballots and mail-in ballots received after election day.

In another news, despite the political intrigues surrounding the presidential election, the head of the US general services administration has been urged by the campaign of US projected president-elect, Joe Biden to approve an official transition of power.

According to Reuters, Biden’s campaign on Sunday, November 8, made the appeal to Donald Tump's political appointee despite the president's refusal to concede.

Biden's campaign team went on to warn that national security and economic interests in the country depended on a clear signal that America would engage in a “smooth and peaceful transfer of power.”
