Did you know? If a voter who decided to cast their ballot by mail in Pennsylvania,
but died before Election Day their vote will not count.
Duane Meade, who had been helping with traffic control since noon said he hasn't seen anything like this in his any years voting. "If polls are like this all over the United States, we won't know who won until next week," he said.
This year record numbers of mail-in voters could delay states being able to declare a winner and therefore the all important electoral votes. In Venango County they expected to have the less than 8,000 mail-in votes processed before polls closed Tuesday.
Locally the races for State Senator and State Representative should be easily decided tonight.
In Franklin in the late afternoon Lee James Green Party opponent Michael Badges-Canning was casually hanging out engaging with anyone who wanted to learn a little more about his candidacy. He said a local paper closer to his home in Butler County did a story about the race for the Pennsylvania 64 seat and reported Lee James was running unopposed.
The Green Party candidate felt a little disrespected even after the small correction in the paper the next day. But that didn't deter him from being available at a few polling locations to answer questions.
