Allegheny County certifies election results | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Taking a crucial step toward finalizing the 2020 election, Allegheny County and other counties across Pennsylvania certified their vote counts Monday, as the few remaining legal challenges continued to proceed through the courts.

In a 2-1 vote along party lines, the Allegheny County elections board ratified the vote count — minus a few minor categories pending legal proceedings — and were set to send them to state officials for further action.

County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and at-large Councilwoman Bethany Hallam, both Democrats, voted to certify the results, while Republican at-large Councilman Sam DeMarco rejected the ratification.

As of mid-afternoon Monday, it was unclear how many other counties had certified their results.
