Pennsylvania governor faces 1 year in prison for violating state election law

402

Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf accidentally admitted to breaking the voting law by handing over his mail-in ballot to his wife to do all the dirty work for him.

“I didn’t show up in person at the polls. We voted a couple weeks ago, actually,” the governor told the radio station KDKA. “My wife actually dropped it off personally two weeks ago, so it’s there."

Pennsylvania state law requires voters who do not mail their absentee or mail-in ballot to “deliver it in person to (their) county board of election,” according to the Associated Press. The only exception is for voters with disabilities who have given written permission to a designated agent, according to Pennsylvania's Department of State.

The governor's office did not respond to a request for comment, nor did it confirm whether an investigation was open against Governor Wolf and his wife.
