Supreme Court Rejects Challenge to Pennsylvania Election Results

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal by Pennsylvania Republicans which aimed to block the certification of the state’s election results.

The appeal, which was led by U.S. Representative Mike Kelly, accused the Pennsylvania General Assembly of exceeding its power when it permitted universal mail-in voting for the 2020 election.

The federal appeal came in response to a decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court which had already ruled that republicans had waited too long to challenge the State’s Constitutionality of Act 77 which had been in place for over a year.

Justice Samuel Alito was ultimately responsible for refusing the emergency appeal on Tuesday, however no justices dissented to the decision – the denial was made unanimously by the high court.

No details were provided by the Court as to why the appeal was denied. “The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied,” the order said, simply.

The republican defeat comes on the same day as the safe-harbor deadline, which under federal law, says that state electors chosen by the deadline must be considered “conclusive” by congress.
