2. I've often wondered why people didn't sue to demand that provisional ballots are counted.

I've read if a voter is challenged they have to provided a provisional ballot. But I've read tons of articles that say provisional ballots are collected but not counted.

I understand it would take some time for a voter to respond to a challenge, so a final count would necessarily be delayed, but aside from the generalization that provisional ballots are not counted, I've never seen an explanation of how it actually works.

Aybody know? Can y'all straighten me out?

(With the TrueTheVote crap sweeping the nation, I think the number of challenges/provisional ballots to Democrats will skyrocket this year.)
