Luzerne County Election Board fails to certify election

Source: WHTM Wilkes-Barre

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (WBRE/WYOU) — On Monday the Luzerne County Election Board failed to certify the election.

The board voted two yes and two no, and one board member abstained on the vote, saying he wants answers about problems on election day before he will vote to certify the results.

It’s unclear what will happen next. Residents urged the board not to certify the results until there are answers as to what led to the paper shortage and other issues at polling places.

All of this comes as the Luzerne County District Attorney investigates a paper shortage on election day.

Somebody on the Election Board screwed up and didn't order enough ballots printed. So people in Luzerne County showed up to vote on Nov. 8th and there weren't enough paper ballots to go around.

Every county in Pennsylvania was furnished with new, working electronic voting machines in 2018. Every voter in Pennsylvania has to option to request a mailed ballot at least 30 days before Election Day. What's the problem?

Republican officials in two counties in Arizona and Pennsylvania declined on Monday to certify their midterm election results, with some citing concerns about the integrity of the voting system that have become commonplace among conservatives.

Republicans on the election boards of Cochise County in Arizona and Luzerne County in Pennsylvania voted against motions to certify the election results there.

Though Cochise County residents voted for GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake and GOP Senate nominee Blake Masters, both candidates ultimately lost their statewide races.

Luzerne County residents voted for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Josh Shapiro and GOP Senate nominee Mehmet Oz, with Shapiro ultimately winning his bid and Oz falling short statewide.


Until people start going to prison for throwing these baseless hissy fits, this will continue. There are requirements to be met to certify and reasons to refuse. if those requirements are met, and none of the reasons to refuse exist, you certify, or you go to prison for election fraud. Two people don't get to throw out tens of thousands of votes because they are crying over their person losing
