DOS defends voting machine re-examination after advocates raise security concerns

The Pennsylvania Department of State is doubling down on its re-examination of a voting machine that election security advocates say is vulnerable to tampering. 

The department recently conducted a re-examination of the ES&S ExpressVote XL, a touch-screen voting machine that produces a voter-verifiable paper record, after three election security advocacy groups petitioned the state to take another look at what they labeled as “deficiencies” in the machine.

Wolf looks to fund voting machine replacement through state-issued bond

Wolf looks to fund voting machine replacement through state-issued bond

Just days after he vetoed a bill offering $90 million to help counties pay for new voting machines, Gov. Tom Wolf on Tuesday announced that his administration will be providing that same amount to counties through a state-issued bond.

The move from Wolf comes after the Democratic governor vetoed Senate Bill 48, legislation that would have amended the Election Code to give the General Assembly more oversight over the decertification of voting machines.
