Pennsylvania Elections: Dance Party, Protests Continue As Vote Counting Nears End in Philadelphia

Philadelphia-Protesters gathered outside the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Friday and are currently counting votes in Philadelphia.
Three days after the election day, both Biden and Trump are fiercely vying for 20 electoral votes in Pennsylvania. If Biden beats Keystone, he will be the expected winner. Trump needs three of four uncalled battlefield states, Pennsylvania, to keep his seat.
On the one hand, it’s a dance party with Elmo and drum lines in favor of Democrat Joe Biden, and on the other hand, it’s a supporter of President Donald Trump.

The Trump side says they just want transparency. They demand that Trump’s representatives be able to see votes counted in response to Trump’s unfounded allegations of widespread fraud in the White House competition.

“We want the Republicans and Democrats to come together and count these votes correctly,” said Trump supporter Brenda Houghton.

Biden says he just wants to count all the votes and feels that the Trump administration is trying to deny it.

“I have the right to vote and deserve to count,” added Biden supporter Gwendolyn Hardemann.

“I hope we can come back together and remember what America is,” said Carissa Førde of Philadelphia.

Pennsylvania’s voting counters approached closing their tally on Friday, and mail voting gave Biden a narrow lead in the fight for the state.

Pennsylvania’s electoral authorities are not allowed to process mail votes until election date under state law, after months after Trump insisted that mail votes would lead to widespread fraudulent votes. These votes were greatly distorted in favor of Biden.
