Sean Hannity discusses how Pennsylvania’s voting laws present a “big problem” and dissects why it is taking the state so long to count the votes for the GOP Senate primary on “Hannity. “

HANNITY: The all-important GOP Senate primary race in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has yet to be called. Six days after Election Day, vote counting is still ongoing.

And in 2016, it took the United Kingdom, oh, about a day to get the final results there during the Brexit referendum, despite 33.5 million votes cast in that election.

They took the easy way out, which makes the act itself unconstitutional. The state constitution states that absentee voting is not allowed. It’s right there in our Constitution. This bill now allows any voter to mail in a ballot for any reason during the weeks leading to the election.
