A state House committee plans to audit Pennsylvania’s election results — after the votes are certified next week.
Pennsylvania officials are imploring voters to return their mail-in ballots now, and in-person at drop boxes – following a recent decision from the U-S Supreme Court that’s called into question the future of ballots that arrive after 8 p.m. on Election Day – and whether they’ll be counted immediately.
With the election less than a week away, Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley are in the spotlight. Wednesday, Allentown was a stop on the democratic campaign trail for Doug Emhoff, husband of democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
The Wolf administration is warning voters to bypass the Postal Service entirely at this point in the election process and deliver mail-in ballots to official dropboxes.
The deadline for Pennsylvania voters to apply for mail ballots has now passed, but with six days until the election, more than 1.2 million requested ballots have yet to be returned to county elections offices.
