Pa. Republicans slowly are learning to embrace mail-in ballots
Sam DeMarco, chairman of the Allegheny County Republican Committee, claims he’s had to fight countless conspiracy theories over the past few election cycles related to voting by mail, largely due to former President Donald Trump’s false claims of widespread election fraud. Mr. DeMarco claims the GOP animus towards mail-in voting has not helped the Republican cause. However, with the 2024 election approaching, a rising number of Republican leaders have been working to educate voters on options and emphasizing to voters how Democrats have used early voting to gain an edge in Pennsylvania. Mr. DeMarco claims they are making progress and hopes an increase in mail-in votes from Republicans could bolster their efforts in the state.
