November 24, 2020 05:12
CNN has already predicted Bennen as a winner in Pennsylvania, where he led by more than 81,000 votes.
“Today, @PAStateDept authenticated the results of the November 3 election in Pennsylvania to the President and Vice President of the United States. I signed the ballot papers of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as required by federal law,” Governor Tom Wolf Twitter post
Wolf thanked the election officials for their work.
“Once again, I would like to thank the election officials who conducted fair and free elections during an incredibly challenging period in the history of our community and the country. Our election workers were constantly attacked and accomplished with recognition and honor,” Wolf added.
The certification was awarded to Commonwealth Secretary Kathy Boockvar after a cumulative certification in 67 counties in Pennsylvania.
Boockvar said counties submitted their aggregate presidential vote late Monday.
States are scheduled to verify their findings by December 8, before the December 14 meeting of the Electoral College.
Pennsylvania’s certification followed a dramatic meeting Monday in the Michigan State Electoral Board, which also voted to certify Biden’s election results after one of two Republican board members decided to abstain.
This triggered the state of the formal transition procedure of the Federal General Services Administration.
