Some gathered near the convention center, where the vote cast by mail is being counted against the clock in the city of Philadelphia, the most populous city in the state and which has delays in counting due to the avalanche of this type of ballot due to the pandemic. .
The rallies, which were also attended by supporters of President Trump, who raised the fear of fraud without providing evidenceThey are given the day after the elections and when the state has begun to resume the vote-by-mail scrutiny, after a long night dedicated to voting in person.
With posters of “All votes count”, the protesters took different points of the center of the city and also congregated near where members of the Trump campaign explained in a press conference their decision to sue Pennsylvania electoral officials for not allowing them to observe the impartiality of the process, in their suspicious opinion.
Further, the same campaign called for the count to be stopped in Michigan, while anticipating that it will request a new recount of the ballots in Wisconsin, where Biden’s margin is less than 1%.
