They are now asking the State Supreme Court to overturn the decisions and allow the votes to be counted.
The issue in these provisional ballots was voters not properly signing the outer envelopes.
In most of these cases, voters signed one line, but not the other.
The Commonwealth court ruled that unless both lines were signed, the votes would not count.READ MORE: Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy Brings Back 'Picnic In Your Park' Event For June
