Please be patient: We most likely won’t know the results of the Nov. 3 election in Pa. and across the country for several days. Find out more about how WLVR News will cover election night and after.

Wednesday afternoon, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf condemned the Trump campaign’s decision to sue the state to stop the ongoing counting of ballots.

Listen to the story.

Governor Wolf says the state will continue its work to count, quote, “every vote and ensure everyone has their voice heard.” 

He says the attack on the election is an attempt to disenfranchise Pennsylvania voters.

The Trump campaign today launched a full-out assault on the vote count in Pennsylvania, claiming without evidence that there’s a lack of transparency in its ballot-counting process.

Well ahead of Election Day, the state’s top election official, Kathy Boockvar, had cautioned the public that it would likely take several days to count all the votes, including 3.1 million mail-in ballots. According to Pennsylvania’s elections website, there are still more than a million left to go.
