Sheriff’s deputies were called to a meeting of the Allegheny County Board of Elections. A group of voters petitioned county Common Pleas Court for recounts in those 12 precincts. County lawyers said the petitions are “defective” because they failed to pay a $50 fee. The petitions were filed after GOP losses in gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races this year, fueling election-denial conspiracy theories.
