Some Pa. counties broadcast ballot count 

By: - May 17, 2022 8:07 pm

Polls are closed in Pennsylvania, and counties are now focused on tabulating final, unofficial results.

It could take some time before voters and candidates know who won in races for U.S. Senate, governor, lieutenant governor, and legislative races because Pennsylvania law prohibits counties from pre-canvassing — opening and counting — mail-in ballots before 7 a.m. on Election Day.

Some Pennsylvania counties are live streaming the tabulating process.

Philadelphia, Delaware, and Centre counties have set up a webcam, so those interested can watch election workers count ballots.

As of 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Centre County finished processing around 8,000 ballots. Commissioner Michael Pipe estimated that another 1,000 ballots would be processed Wednesday.
