WASHINGTON D.C. — Both Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) have expressed support for the ongoing ballot counting continuing across the country for the 2020 Presidential Election.
“Under our Constitution, state legislatures set the rules and states administer our elections. We should respect that process and ensure that all ballots cast in accordance with state laws are counted. It’s that simple,” Portman said in a statement.
Brown said it was known for some time in advance of the election that counting the votes would take longer due to the pandemic and increase in absentee voting.
“It means the system is working," said Brown. “They’re making sure every vote is counted...it simply takes time to process.”
