Election day law was violated

I mentioned that Joe Biden stole this election. I haven't been able to assess all the allegations, but here are a couple of laws.

Federal election law states:

The electors of President and Vice President shall be appointed, in each State, on the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November, in every fourth year succeeding every election of a President and Vice President.
So each state's electors were supposed to be appointed on Nov. 3. On that day, and that day only.

As I read this, there should be no early or late voting, and no late counting. Nov. 3 is election day. All popular votes should be cast and counted on that day. The Electoral College acts later.

Millions of votes were collected before Nov. 3, and millions more were counted afterwards. They should not count. They are contrary to this federal law.

The Pennsylvania constitution says:

§ 14. Absentee voting.
(a) The Legislature shall, by general law, provide a manner in which, and the time and place at which, qualified electors who may, on the occurrence of any election, be absent from the municipality of their residence, because their duties, occupation or business require them to be elsewhere or who, on the occurrence of any election, are unable to attend at their proper polling places because of illness or physical disability or who will not attend a polling place because of the observance of a religious holiday or who cannot vote because of election day duties, in the case of a county employee, may vote, and for the return and canvass of their votes in the election district in which they respectively reside.
As I read this, absentee or mail-in votes in Penn. should be the exceptions, and only allowed in the narrow circumstances specified: inability to vote in person because of illness, disability, observance of religious holiday, or election day duties.

Penn. allowed millions of mail-in votes by citizens who had none of those excuses. They could have voted in person, but they mailed in a ballot instead. Such a ballot does not comply with Penn. law, and should not be counted.

It is clear now that Donald Trump won the big majority of the valid votes cast on election day. Biden is only be certified by counting dubious ballots that do not comply with election law or how elections have been traditionally been done in the USA. The dubious procedures allowed Democrat operatives to pressure votes from those who normally do not vote and may not even pay any attention to politics.

Why must all the votes be counted before the Electors are appointed if the Electoral College doesn't meet until December?

So the public can see that the process is fair and honest.

If they are using voting machines, and the polls close at 8pm, then we should have results at 8:05pm. If they are using paper ballots, they are still using machines to count the ballots, and we should have results right away. Even allowing for paper jams and other problems, we should have results by 9pm.

If the process is delayed for days, and ballots are processed outside the view of observers, then there is no way to have confidence in the result. There is no good reason for the delay, except for crooked behavior.

So it's not a legal issue but a policy preference. Fair enough.

No, it is also a legal issue. Federal law says that the electors shall be appointed on election day. Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania failed to do that.
