Associate Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito ordered all of the county election boards in Pennsylvania to segregate all late-arrival ballots from the rest of the mail-in ballots and to keep them separated when the voting is conducted in a Friday night ruling…

The ballots had to be postmarked by the time polls closed on Tuesday, and the party asked the highest court in the land to order that those ballots be “segregated” and not counted at this time.

“All county boards of election are hereby ordered, pending further order of the Court, to comply with the following guidance provided by the Secretary of the Commonwealth on October 28 and November 1, namely, (1) that all ballots received by mail after 8:00 p.m. on November 3 be segregated and kept ‘in a secure, safe, and sealed container separate from other voted ballots,’ and (2) that all such ballots, if counted, shall be counted separately,” Alito said.
