Workers at Philadelphia’s convention center are blaming the “problem child ballots” for slowing the counting process, CNN's Kate Bolduan reports.
“The group of ballots that they're dealing with here in Philadelphia, they require extra attention. They require more review,” she said, adding that there are about 20,000 of these ballots to wade through.
Overnight, around 60 workers were prepping these ballots for review. That includes “grouping those 'problem child ballots' into buckets to address a specific issue at hand,” Bolduan reported.
The review process should have begun already per the schedule and while there are also some 18,000 provisional ballots to be counted, workers are entirely focused on getting through these “problem child ballots.” While some updates can be expected today, it is unclear how many of these ballots the workers will be able to get through and when, she added.
