It’s currently about 1:15 p.m. in Pittsburgh and the first ballot cast for the new Metropolitan has been tallied within the last hour or two. According to the reporting by Ancient Faith Radio, no candidate received the 2/3 required majority and a second ballot will be taken. No information has been received yet as to when that ballot will be taken or whether it has already occurred. While you’re waiting, go to Ancient Faith Radio and listen to a fascinating Ancient Faith Radio interview with Fr. John Erickson that was conducted during the tallying of the first ballot this morning. He gives a very thorough explanation of the election process.
