Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito ordered county election boards in Pennsylvania to comply with guidance requiring them to keep ballots received after 8 p.m. Election Day "in a safe, secure, and sealed container separate from other voted ballots,” as Newsweek and other outlets reported Friday. How could Alito's directive affect returns for the presidential election?
Additionally, The Associated Press reported that 24 Wisconsin counties had completed canvassing of election results as of Monday morning, but that "all 72 must be in before President Donald Trump could call for a recount.” How long will that take, and will other states besides Georgia recount?
Jason Snead, executive director of the Honest Elections Project, joins the podcast to discuss.
