On Wednesday morning, Philadelphia city commissioners said they are uncertain when the tallying process will be complete.

Fox News reported that during a news conference, Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt said that results will not be known until “at least this time tomorrow.”

“It’s more important that we do it right than meet artificial deadlines,” Schmidt said. “We’re pushing out the results as quickly as we can.”

City Commissioner Lisa Deeley, on the other hand, did not specify a timeline.

“We’ll be done as soon as we’re done,” Deeley said. “We’re going to count the votes and we’re going to end up at the end. But it’s going to be accurate and we’re going to continue to give you information as it becomes available.”

According to Schmidt, the unprecedented volume of mail-in ballots made the process more time-consuming, Fox News reported.

“When half of the votes in the city are cast by mail and half of the votes are at the polling place, counting votes cast by mail — if you’re going to do it right and you’re going to do it accurately because there’s no other choice — takes a little bit of time,” he said.

    I thought that all voting stopes on November 3rd. Who ever is late is too bad. Need vote on time not 1-2-3 weeks later. Why not 2 months later…or a 2 years? Sometime need to cut off.
