Did Pennsylvania Have More Mail-In Ballots Recorded Than Were Requested?

On Friday, November 27, Doug Mastriano, Republican state senator from Pennsylvania, tweeted a screenshot of what is said to be “Pennsylvania Official votes,”  from “11/24 8pm,” which he claims was “posted on our Department of State dashboard but had since been deleted.” 

The voting information is accompanied with the following caption: “Pennsylvania reports having mailed out 1,823,148 ballots, of which 1,462,302 were returned. Yet total mail-in votes number 2,589,242? From where did the extra 2,589,242-1,462, 302=1,126,940 votes come?”

President Donald Trump retweeted Mastriano’s tweet, claiming the “Pennsylvania votes were rigged.”
