(NewsReady.com) – Prior to the election, the Supreme Court of the US (SCOTUS) refused to stop Pennsylvania from counting ballots received up to three days after Election Day. President Donald Trump called the ruling “dangerous” at the time. On November 6, Justice Samuel Alito issued a new ruling in the case.
The GOP asked the court to enforce an order by Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar (D) requiring county officials to segregate the ballots received after November 3. Justice Alito agreed and issued the ruling. However, the justice didn’t require the election boards to stop counting the ballots.

The ruling seems to suggest the full court might hear the case again. Currently, according to media projections, Joe Biden is leading in the state. Would he still be in the lead without those ballots? Nothing is official until the court cases reach their conclusion and the Electoral College casts its votes.
