Pennsylvania Electoral College Casts Ballots for President and Vice President of the United States

Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar presided over the 59th Pennsylvania Electoral College meeting, during which the commonwealth's 20 electors unanimously voted for Joseph R. Biden for president and Kamala D. Harris for vice president of the United States, in accordance with Pennsylvania's popular vote results in the Nov. 3 election.

"This year, despite being in the middle of a global pandemic, more Pennsylvanians than ever before - 6.9 million - participated in the Nov. 3 election and had their voices heard," Secretary Boockvar told the electors. "As President George H.W. Bush eloquently said after the 1992 election, 'The people have spoken, and we respect the majesty of our democratic system.'"
