Allegheny Co. elections board meeting to consider challenged provisional ballots

ALLEGHENY CO., Pa. — The Allegheny County elections board is meeting Saturday to consider the provisional ballots that were challenged.

The public meeting will be held at the county election warehouse and will also be streamed live on the county’s Facebook page here.

During the hearing, all voters affected by these appeals will be listed -- and the list will be posted online here.

No matter what the elections board decides for each ballot challenge, officials said appeals can be made to the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County within two days.

On Friday, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar announced the canvassing of ballots is almost complete. About 100,000 provisional ballots and more than 28,000 military and overseas ballots are left to be counted.

State officials said approximately 40,000 of the provisional ballots cast have been counted or partially counted, and these numbers will continue to climb over the next few days.

Also, 28,529 military and overseas absentee ballots were cast. Nov. 10 was the deadline for counties to receive uniformed and overseas civilian absentee (UOCAVA) ballots.
