The state of Pennsylvania sent out approximately 1.8 million mail-in ballots, a record number. What is far more amazing, however, is that approximately 2.5 million of these ballots came back in. Many came back in the day after they were sent out. Many more came back in the very same day they were mailed out. In fact, tens of thousands came back in before they were sent out. This must be proof positive of the truly remarkable efficiency of the Pennsylvania vote counting process!
This process obviously became even more efficient in the hours and days after the polls closed, as Trump had a nearly 700,000 vote lead with 64% of the vote accounted for shortly after the polls closed. (Pennsylvania allowed votes to be counted for several days after the election.)
1.8 million mail-in ballots were sent out and 2.5 million were returned? This is like saying, “I got up half an hour before I went to sleep.” It’s simply not possible.
But, thanks to election officials like the one below, miracles were performed.
