Local Leaders, Voters to Demand Counting Every Vote After Polls Close


CHESTER COUNTY, PA — This evening, local leaders and voters will join together after polls close at the Government Services Center in West Chester to demand that every vote in Pennsylvania be counted and urge patience as election officials do their jobs after voters finish voting.

But leaders and voters will demand that every voter should have their voice heard and their vote counted.

Due to coronavirus and health concerns, more people will be voting absentee than ever before. It will take longer to count the votes and verify a winner in this year’s election but that is essential to ensure every vote is counted.

Absentee ballots take longer to count because of security measures to verify the accuracy of those ballots. Despite the pandemic, most counties in Pennsylvania have gone above and beyond to count as efficiently as they can.

Local leaders and voters joining together at 8:30 pm tonight for this call to action include Representative Carolyn Comitta, Representative Dan Williams, Mayor Dianne Herrin, Reverend Kyle Boyer (President of the West Chester NAACP), and CVPA member Edna Patterson.
