A Supreme court Justice has ordered that election ballots should be recounted in Pennsylvania as the Incumbent Republican Party cries foul over US Election results.

Justice Alito of the Supreme court has ordered electoral officials to separate ballots that arrived after the Election day of Nov 3, 2020. He ordered That mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania are to be kept apart. The state’s top elections official already had ordered those ballots be kept apart.

The order came on Friday night in response to a plea from the state Republican Party as Democrat Joe Biden inched ahead of President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania in the presidential race.

Alito, acting on his own, said he was motivated in part by the Republicans’ assertion that they can’t be sure elections officials are complying with guidance issued by Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat.

The justice handles emergency appeals from Pennsylvania as it relates to the US election. He ordered a response from the state by Saturday afternoon and said he has referred the matter to the full court for further action.

The order is related to an ongoing Republican appeal to the Supreme Court to try to keep ballots received in the mail after Election Day from being counted. The state’s top court granted a three-day extension, and the Supreme Court refused to block it.

Biden’s lead over Trump in the US election is growing in battleground Pennsylvania. By Friday evening, the Democrat-held a lead of over 19,500 votes out of more than 6.5 million ballots cast. That’s an edge of about 0.29%. State law dictates that a recount must be held if the margin between the two candidates is less than 0.5%.
