“I want to thank all the Pennsylvanians who took time out to vote this election day. As Thomas Jefferson said, we have government by the majority who participate and we’re grateful for their participation,” Schmidt said.
Schmidt said there were 800,000 mail-in and absentee ballots requested across the state and about 75 percent were returned.
