(Dec. 28, 2020) — On Monday night, 17 Pennsylvania Republican legislators released a statement and analysis of the November 3 presidential election showing inconsistencies between county-reported figures and the Commonwealth’s “election reporting system,” “SURE,” operated by the Department of State.
In the press release, the lawmakers claimed that Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and Governor Tom Wolf, both Democrats, certified Democrat Joe Biden as the winner of the November 3, 2020 presidential election while figures were “unconfirmed,” prematurely, and ultimately “in error.”
“These numbers just don’t add up,” the group contended.
“A comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted on November 3, 2020 as recorded by the Department of State shows that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted,” the press release reads. “Among the 6,962,607 total ballots cast, 6,931,060 total votes were counted in the presidential race, including all three candidates on the ballot and write-in candidates.”
Further, it states:
The difference of 202,377 more votes cast than voters voting, together with the 31,547 over- and under-votes in the presidential race, adds up to an alarming discrepancy of 170,830 votes, which is more than twice the reported statewide difference between the two major candidates for President of the United States. On November 24, 2020, Boockvar certified election results, and Wolf issued a certificate of ascertainment of presidential electors, stating that Vice President Joe Biden received 80,555 more votes than President Donald Trump.
The graphic at the bottom of the press release shows SURE data as consistent at 6,760,230 in three categories, including that of “voters who voted” on November 3, 2020.
After reviewing the legislators’ press release, The Post & Email contacted Boockvar’s office for comment.
Since November 4, Trump and his surrogates have claimed he won Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes.
