Mail-in ballot counting kicked off in Lehigh County this morning just before 9 a.m. WLVR’s Tyler Pratt was there, along with poll watchers as the first ballots were opened and the first “naked ballots” were found.

Lehigh County sent out nearly 48-thousand mail-in ballots for this year’s primary election–more than election officials have ever tried to count on Election Day.
Wear a mask, keep a safe distance and bring your own pen. These are some of the changes Pennsylvania voters experienced casting their ballots today.
