HARRISBURGAs counties across Pennsylvania continue the work to count and certify election results, concerns over the process continue to grow. PA House Speaker, Rep. Bryan Cutler of Lancaster County sent a letter to Gov. Tom Wolf requesting a full audit be completed before the certification of any results. In the letter Cutler cites actions taken by the state Supreme Court and the Department of State that have created confusion for county election officials, and actions believed to be in violation of the federal Constitution. Cutler explains an audit is needed because of a litany of inconsistencies as a result of court actions and Department of State guidance, including the dismissal of signature requirements for mail-in ballots, certain counties allowing for curative measures, counties not following the United States Supreme Court ruling requiring ballots received after election day to be segregated, and more. Cutler added, “We must take every possible step to ensure that all Pennsylvanians and all Americans know that our Commonwealth has conducted the General Election with integrity.”
