PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — County elections officials did not stop their count of mail-in ballots overnight, vowing to keep going until every vote is counted.
Mail-in ballots from Philadelphia are still being counted at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, where officials say they were able to tackle 65,000 more overnight.
That operation is visible to the public via live video feed.
According to county websites, in the Philadelphia area, Democratic candidate Joe Biden has a 372,000 vote advantage over President Donald Trump. Bucks is the only county where Trump has a lead.
It could be days before enough of those votes are counted to call the winner of Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes. The fate of the presidency hangs in the balance, as Trump and Biden fight for Pennsylvania and other key battleground states.
Gov. Tom Wolf tweeted a promise early Wednesday that every vote would count.
According to City Commissioner Al Scmidt, there are hundreds of thousands left to go in Philadelphia alone.
