Armed Trump Supporters surround Pennsylvania and other polling stations demand vote counts to be halted.
Governor Tom Wolf reaffirmed his commitment to counting every vote in the 2020 general election and condemned all efforts to stop the vote count before every eligible vote is counted.
Ahead of planned efforts in Philadelphia to disrupt election officials from counting the vote, he released the following statement:
“Pennsylvania is going to count every vote and no amount of intimidation will stop our dedicated election officials in our municipalities. As a country and a commonwealth, we must reject efforts to intimidate election workers and prevent votes from being counted. The planned attacks on our elections this morning are undemocratic and all elected officials must denounce them. Pennsylvania will be prepared to protect our election workers and our votes.
Pennsylvania is going to fight every single attempt to disenfranchise voters and continue to administer a free and fair election. Our election officials at the state and local level should be free to do their jobs without intimidation or attacks. These attempts to subvert the democratic process are disgraceful.”
In Philadelphia, officials are administering the election with the highest degree of transparency. There has been a livestream of the ballot-counting process available throughout the count, and all parties have canvass observers.
