YORK, Pa.  All Voting is Local Pennsylvania’s State Director Nick Pressley issued the following statement in response to Pennsylvania’s York County decision to hand count ballots at three random precincts on Thursday:

“York County’s decision to hand count ballots on Thursday caves to conspiracy theorist rhetoric and has the potential to put countless votes in jeopardy. 

“Bad faith actors in York County are seeking to actively undermine voters by insisting on a  hand count of  ballots, which is less accurate and more time consuming than the electronic tabulation that is already in use. This is meant to sow distrust into our elections. Pennsylvania voters see through these lies and there are systems in place to ensure their votes are properly counted and certified.”
