Pennsylvania governor caught letting wife drop off his election ballot

State law requires voters return their own mail-in ballots to a county election office or drop box.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf admitted this week he made a mistake when he allowed his wife to drop off his mail-in ballot ahead of Tuesday’s municipal elections.

The comments came during an interview with KDKA radio in Pittsburgh. A Wolf spokesperson told The Associated Press “it was an honest mistake.”

State law requires voters return their own mail-in ballots to a county election office or drop box. Written permission must be given to return someone else’s ballot.

It’s unclear whether Wolf’s ballot will be counted as valid. The Center Square reached out to the administration Friday for clarification but did not receive an immediate response as of Friday.

State Rep. Seth Grove, R-York, who leads the chamber’s effort to reform election law via the vetoed House Bill 1300, pointed out the discrepancy in Wolf’s actions in a statement Thursday on Twitter.
