Supreme Court rejects GOP request to halt mail-in ballot count in Pennsylvania

02:45

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito late Friday granted part of a request from Pennsylvania's state Republicans, who wanted an order regarding mail ballots that came in during the extended deadline. He ordered county election officials to comply with a previous directive issued by the secretary of state to keep mail ballots separate that arrived after election day but before Friday at 5 p.m. But he did not order the state to stop counting them.
