>>Secretary Of State Urges Counties To Start Counting Ballots Soon
(Williamsport, PA) -- Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar is urging counties to begin precanvassing ballots on Election Day. Boockvar says if not at 7 a.m. then at some point on Election Day because it is going to take a while, and the sooner they start the sooner they will finish. Due to the state's ballot deadline extension, counties can put off counting the ballots until Friday after the election. But, Boockvar hopes they start sooner as two of the 67 counties have already said they won't.
