  • November 25, 2020

Biden, who is a native of Scranton, Pennsylvania, won the state with 50% of the vote, compared with 48.8% for Trump.

According to the tally released by Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar’s office on Tuesday, Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, received 3,458,229 votes, while Trump and Vice President Mike Pence received 3,377,674 votes.

Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian Party presidential nominee, and her running mate, Jeremy Spike Cohen, received 79,380 votes, about 1,200 fewer votes than the margin between the Biden and Trump tickets.

In Nevada, whose vote results were certified by the state Supreme Court, Biden received 50% of the vote and Trump got almost 47.7%. Biden won almost 343,600 vote more than Trump.

Pennsylvani Gov. Tom Wolf in a tweet said that he had signed the “Certificate of Ascertainment for the slate of electors for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris” after Boockvar certified their win.

“Again, I want to thank the election officials who have administered a fair and free election during an incredibly challenging time in our commonwealth and country’s history,” Wolf added in another tweet.

“Our election workers have been under constant attack and they have performed admirably and honorably.”

Boockvar said in a statement, “We are tremendously grateful to all 67 counties who have been working extremely long hours to ensure that every qualified voter’s vote is counted safely and securely.”

“The county election officials and the poll workers are the true heroes of our democracy, enabling us to vote in record numbers, amid challenging circumstances, so that every eligible voter’s voice could be heard,” Boockvar said.
