A group of Pennsylvania lawmakers have issued a press release stating that because of a massive and “troubling discrepancy” in Pennsylvania’s Presidential Election vote tally, the certification of that state’s presidential election results was “absolutely premature, unconfirmed, and in error.”
The state lawmakers – primarily Republican, said their analysis was based on a comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted in the November 3, 2020 General Election in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania Department of State figures show “that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted,” the lawmakers’ statement said.
Of the 6,962,607 total ballots cast, 6,931,060 total votes were counted in the presidential race between President Trump and Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden, as well as third party and write-in candidates.
They lawmakers’ statement said the difference of 202,377 more votes cast than voters voting, in addition to the 31,547 over- and under-votes in the presidential race, tallies a discrepancy of 170,830 votes. This tally is more than twice the statewide difference between President Trump and Biden.
“These numbers just don’t add up, and the alleged certification of Pennsylvania’s presidential election results was absolutely premature, unconfirmed, and in error,” the lawmakers wrote.
Analysis of Pennsylvania voting finds that “6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicated that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted.”

A spokesperson for Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State, Kathy Boockvar, told reporters that the Republican lawmakers’ “so-called analysis was based on incomplete data” and that both state and federal judges “have sifted through hundreds of pages of unsubstantiated and false allegations and found no evidence of fraud or illegal voting.”
Pennsylvania is one of five states whose Electoral College elector slates will be challenged by US Representatives led by Mo Brooks (R-AL) and a growing number of legislators during a Joint Session of Congress tasked with certifying a final tally of Electoral College votes for President and Vice President of the United States on January 6, 2021.
