Carl Anderson, the chairman of Pennsylvania's Erie County Board of Elections said Tuesday that things were going well for Election Day.
Erie County which is located in northwestern part of the state, had one of the narrowest margins of victory for President Donald Trump in 2016, who won the county by a little over a percentage point.
“Things are going very well. It is a beautiful sunny day and 54 degrees. What we call a “Democratic voter turnout day,” he said.
Amid the smoothness of the day, Anderson noted that the county may even be on track to exceed its goal of processing at least 10,000 mail-in ballots by tonight.
“The word I have asked people for is patience and that seems to be accepted by an overwhelming majority. Very few and very isolated reports of voter intimidation. People have been very respectful,” Anderson added.
