Allegheny County Board Of Elections Votes To Count More Than 2,000 Ballots Without Declaration Dates – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — One week after Election Day and election-related lawsuits are piling up in Pennsylvania.

But so are the ballots.

More than 2,000 of those ballots were ballots that appear to be eligible in every way, except they didn’t have a date on the outer envelope.

On Tuesday inside the election warehouse on the North Side, staffers began processing ballots at 9:00 a.m. and continued working until 9 p.m. At around 3:00 p.m., there were roughly 27,000 outstanding ballots in Allegheny County.

The process happened in front of 18 observers who represented both Republicans and Democrats, according to county leaders. Outstanding ballots included military and overseas ballots, which could be received until 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Of the 29,000 ballots originally mailed to the wrong voters, 7,000 of those are still under review.

“Right now, we are doing a comparison of any spoiled or surrendered ballots at the polling locations to make sure they didn’t surrender their correct ballot and vote at the polls. So we want to make sure we do that prior to counting the 7,000,” said David Voye, the Allegheny County Elections Division manager.
