HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Officials in a northeastern Pennsylvania county where paper shortages caused Election Day ballot problems are deadlocked on whether to report official vote tallies to the state. The tie vote on Monday effectively prevents Luzerne County’s certification of the Nov. 8 election results. Two Democratic members of the Luzerne County Board of Elections and Voter Registration voted in favor of certification, both Republicans voted “no” and the fifth member, a Democrat, abstained. A judge extended voting in Luzerne by two hours, to 10 p.m., after the supplies ran short at some polling places.
