Everybody wants to change Pennsylvania election law, but nobody trusts each other

Lawmakers in Harrisburg want to change how Pennsylvania elections are run. They just don’t agree on how. Or why.

With the vote count now over, here’s how Pennsylvania broke for Joe Biden

Analysis It’s now official: President-elect by 80,555 votes, significantly larger than the 44,292-vote margin that helped carry President Donald Trump to the White House in 2016. Related stories Digging into the numbers, it’s delivering in overwhelming fashion for Biden, giving him margins that swamped Trump’s fervent support in more rural and postindustrial areas of the state. But there are in a state once again decided by about 1 percentage point. Some defied expectations.
