Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar said Friday that she will not be ordering a recount in the state for the 2020 presidential election.
Boockvar’s office released a statement saying Boockvar “has determined that she will not be ordering a recount and recanvass of the election returns in the counties, as no statewide candidate was defeated by one-half of one percent or less of the votes cast,” NBC Politics reported.
A Pennsylvania judge sided Thursday with the Trump campaign, ruling that ballots that did not have proof of identity before Nov. 9 would not be counted. The decision came after Boockvar issued guidance saying that a ballot that lacked proof of identification could be fixed up to six days after the deadline for accepting ballots.
