Results of the Nov. 3 election in Pennsylvania, and across the country, likely won’t be known for days. The counting of ballots continues after election night most years. This year’s expected surge in mailed ballots means election offices will need extra time to tally all the votes.

WITF’s Smart Talk is featuring interviews with candidates running for both statewide and national offices. These conversations are intended to focus on the issues. All candidates who appear on the ballot in the WITF listening area and who have opponents were invited to be on the program.
