Here’s how presidential candidates fared locally

NORRISTOWN PA – Preliminary and unofficial Montgomery County general election results from Tuesday (Nov. 3, 2020) appear to show Joe Biden winning the presidential race in the county overall, with 251,792 votes; compared to Donald Trump with 163,046, and Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen with 4,050.

However, the still-unverified election tallies last reported Wednesday morning (Nov. 4) by the county Voter Services Department may not yet include a significant number of all relevant mail-in ballots cast county-wide. They are still being counted, and updated almost hourly, so a final tally may be subject to change.

In western Montgomery County voting so far by municipality, Voter Services reports:
