More than 2.5 million Pennsylvanians have requested mail-in ballots this election cycle, but without action taken by the state government, counties may not be able to begin processing those ballots until Election Day.

A spokesperson for Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, a Republican, said in a statement to Fox News on Thursday that Wolf threatened to veto bipartisan legislation passed weeks ago that would allow for “significant pre-canvassing options” and has only engaged in discussions at “the 11th hour.”

“There has been nothing that the governor has put on the table at this late stage that changes our caucus’s priorities as outlined in the legislation we passed more than a month ago,” the spokesperson said. "We continue to be open to further discussions with the administration about how we can make our election processes better and more secure.”
