HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Wolf and Republican state lawmakers remain at odds over how to update Pennsylvania’s voting laws to handle an expected avalanche of mail-in ballots in November’s presidential election in the battleground state.

Wolf, a Democrat, laid down several markers Thursday for what he is seeking. In part, Wolf called for lawmakers to allow counties to begin processing mail-in ballots three weeks before the election and to require them to count ballots that arrive up to three days after the Nov. 3 election.

In the meantime, Philadelphia on Thursday accepted a $10 million grant to help it advance an ambitious election plan.
