All eyes are on Pennsylvania as the vote count continues.



Casselli said since Monday morning, local post offices have been sending mailing in ballots straight from local post offices in Philadelphia to an intake center at the sports complex before heading to 12th and Arch streets.

"I sit on telecons all day and as far as what I knew in Philadelphia and visually, all the ballots have been delivered on time," said Casselli.

A United States Postal Service spokesperson for the region would not discuss specifics, but released a statement that read in part, "Ballots will continue to be accepted and processed and we will deliver to their intended destination."
