Kathy Boockvar

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Bookvar has resigned. She’s out of the job because her department made a mistake that will delay some child sexual abuse survivors from bringing their alleged abusers to court.

Pennsylvania’s top election official says there are still over 150K ballots remaining as of this morning to be counted before a winner can be determined in the presidential race.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar said that although election workers have counted hundreds of thousands of ballots on Thursday, there’s still several hundred thousand votes remaining to be counted.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar says the “overwhelmingly” majority of ballots there will be counted on Thursday.
Asked whether the winner of Pennsylvania could be known by the day’s end, Boockvar responded: “We definitely could.”

At last count, nearly two point five million mail-in ballots have been cast in Pennsylvania, and county election officials weren’t able to start counting them until this morning.
