Out of its 1,322 voting districts, Allegheny County’s Elections Division will recanvass voting machines in 52. And most of those are in Pittsburgh. The recanvass — not recount — comes after voters in those areas requested reviews of the results in the presidential and Senate elections. It all happens at 10 a.m. Monday.
Pittsburgh may ban so-called conversion therapy, a discredited practice that aims to change the sexual orientation or gender identity of a person. Council President Bruce Kraus and Councilmember Dan Gilman introduced the legislation, which would apply only to people under the age of 18, on Tuesday. Gilman said the recent election, and specifically VP-elect Mike Pence's view on conversion therapy, pushed the issue back "into the forefront."
On Monday, lawyers for Jill Stein will likely be in a Harrisburg courtroom to argue why the state should recount votes in the presidential election. There has to be a decision by Dec. 13 before the electoral college officially selects the next president on Dec. 19. But even if a recount happens, you shouldn't expect the election results to change, Billy Penn reported. President-elect Donald Trump beat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by about 70,000 votes.

The Arby's venison sandwiches may have sold out, but you have one more option to try it: a Pittsburgh man is selling his sandwich on Craigslist. For $500, you could try the sandwich (sans fries) that's in "like new" condition. Plus, you'll help the seller pay off his student loan debt.
