The make or break state of Pennsylvania has yet to post final results of Tuesday night’s election as poll workers continue to count ballots through Wednesday and may just be getting started. The Keystone State’s Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, D, told reporters Wednesday morning that the process could last through next week to assure that all military ballots are counted.
The Pennsylvania Department of State allows for overseas military ballots to be received up to 5:00 p.m. 7 days after election day.
“Vote count, as I’ve said many times, is never done on election night and the counties are doing this accurately… and as quickly as they possibly can,” Boockvar explained. “And, again, I’ll also just remind everyone military overseas ballots are not due until a week after election day, so next Tuesday is the deadline for military and overseas voters to cast their ballots.”
She added, “And we want to make sure that not only every civilian absentee ballot valid voter is counted, but also that every man and woman who are serving our country that their votes are counted.”
Currently, 79% of precincts are reporting 5,651,860 ballots cast, according to The New York Times. President Donald Trump is now leading with 53.8% of the vote.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
