By: - November 2, 2021 9:18 am

Not an elections official, volunteer, or poll watcher, but still want to watch the electoral process in action?

Interested viewers can watch more than 100 volunteers at work in Centre County as officials stream the vote-by-mail processing room on a live feed for the Nov. 2 general election.

Two feeds will broadcast the process, located inside the Penn State Hotel and Conference Center. Individuals can watch a split-screen of the room or a wide shot.

Several Pennsylvania counties, including Philadelphia and Allegheny, used live feeds to stream ballot-counting during the 2020 general election for added transparency. Centre County also recorded the process during the May 18 primary election.

The stream will conclude at 7 p.m. on Election Day and resume at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.

In addition to volunteers, each political party and candidate can have one person in the pre-canvassing room to observe the process. 

Centre County officials expect full results will be available by 8 p.m. on Wednesday.
