Panel Urges Funding For New PA Voting Machines

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG (AP) – A group examining election security in the Commonwealth is urging Congress and state lawmakers to speed up replacement of voting machines, noting most lack a paper record needed to check for fraud and errors. The Blue Ribbon Commission on PA’s Election Security released recommendations, saying the integrity of the state’s elections is at risk. The Wolf Administration said earlier this year that counties buying new electronic voting systems must insure they leave a paper trail. The PA Department of State says it’s strongly considering banning the use of machines without a paper trail by the 2020 spring primary. About four in five voters in the state use machines that lack a paper trail. It would take an estimated $125 million to replace all machines statewide.
