The Court, on Tuesday, denied to grant emergency injunctive relief, but the case is still pending and could be heard by the court.

The group challenging at the Court, led by Republican Rep. Mike Kelly, challenged Act 77, which was a change made by the Republican-controlled state legislature that allowed universal mail-in ballots. They argued that the state’s constitution did not allow for this change, The Washington Post reported.

But the Pennsylvania Supreme Court said the challenge was filed too late — only after the votes were cast and the results are known. Democrat Joe Biden won the state by a more than 80,000-vote margin.

The unanimous order blamed petitioners for a “complete failure to act with due diligence in commencing their facial constitutional challenge, which was ascertainable upon Act 77’s enactment.”
