1. If the landslide is big enough...

their numbers just might be irrelevant anyway.

5. Lawrence O. reported last night

that there are seven, usually red, counties in PA that never count until starting the day after election day, because they don't have the personnel to do it on election day. He tied it to the fact that Trump will shoot himself in the foot if he stops vote count in PA with election day....

6. I don't remember where I saw the map

but all the blue counties are counting on election day: Philly, counties around Philly, Pittsburgh, I think the two counties one of which include Scranton, Harrisburg, State College, etc. I noticed most of the counties waiting on the count were in more remote parts of the state.

10. Looks like

Beaver, Cumberland, Franklin, Greene, Mercer, Monroe, and Montour. All red counties in 2016 except for Monroe, which Clinton carried. Combined vote total of around 421k it looks, based on 2016.

3. Does that mean they aren't counting until after the polls close?

4. According to this article, two counties aren't going to count on election day. They are red counties

So, it won't help trump.

"Americans may have to wait beyond election night to find out who won Pennsylvania, since at least two counties in the state will not begin counting mail-in ballots until the day after the election.


"Election officials in Cumberland and Butler Counties, both of which are heavily Republican, say their staffs are simply too small to tally mail ballots while at the same time running Election Day operations.

"Under state law, it's legal for these counties to wait. They're allowed to open mail-in ballot envelopes, check signatures and scan ballots — a process known as "pre-canvassing" — on the morning of Election Day, but they must wait until polls close at 8 p.m. to report results."

8. Seems counter productive for crooked Donnie

Wouldn't they want as many votes as possible counted on voting day?

9. In Pennsylvania, Republicans Might Only Need to Stall to Win



“Pennsylvania, like Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Michigan, isn’t only a battleground state,” Mark Medish, the co-founder of Keep Our Republic, told me recently. “Pennsylvania has a Democratic governor and a Republican legislature. This political division sets up a potential dispute over who, in a contested election, can appoint special electors.” In Pennsylvania, even if Democrats win the popular vote, Republicans could contest the results, arguing that various procedural aspects are illegitimate. Court cases regarding the election could end up before the Supreme Court, which will be filled with Trump appointees and likely to rule in his favor. But Republicans don’t even have to win; all they have to do is stall. If the vote is not certified by December 8th, the Republican-controlled legislature could appoint electors, who would likely cast their votes for Trump.

11. How can he claim he won? . ...

if the two red counties don't count on November 3rd?

especially if he is behind, far behind. That would hinder his chances to claim such, even re-count wouldn't help.

Please let this nightmare begin to go away.

15. I understand that is their state law

Setting them aside until after election day votes are counted is how it is done there.
