(Harrisburg) -- All 67 Pennsylvania's counties have certified their vote totals from the November 7 election.
The certified totals reported Friday by state elections officials show that 5.7 million Pennsylvanians cast ballots for president.
Incumbent President Obama, a Democrat, received 2,990,274 votes, or 52 percent, while Republican nominee Mitt Romney claimed 2,680,434, or 47 percent. The Green and Libertarian party candidates each received less than one percent of the vote.
The election's biggest vote-getter was Attorney General-elect Kathleen Kane, whose 3,125,557 votes were more than Mr. Obama or Democratic Senator Bob Casey, elected to a second term.
The totals don't vary significantly from the unofficial totals gathered on election night by news organizations and the State Department.
Department spokesman Ron Ruman says the totals exclude a couple hundred provisional ballots that remain uncounted.
