For three days following the Nov. 3 election, counties in Pennsylvania will be permitted to tally votes that were postmarked by 8 p.m. on Election Day and delivered by the postal service, the state Supreme Court ruled on Thursday.

Before the ruling, ballots had to be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day, but the state’s highest court ruled that ballots mailed by voters using the United States Postal Service — so long as they were postmarked in time and “valid and received by the county boards of election on or before 5 p.m. on Nov. 6, 2020” — shall be counted.

The court also ruled that counties are allowed to collect hand-delivered ballots at locations “other than their office addresses, including drop-boxes,” Justice Max Baer wrote in a 63-page majority opinion.
