The bill will allow counties to start processing mail-in ballots three days before the Nov. 3 election in the hopes of speeding up vote-counting as concerns have begun mounting lately that the results of the contentious presidential election could be delayed for days as officials from the Keystone State count the ballots. During the June primary thousands of Pennsylvanians received their mail-in ballots after the election.
