Multiple missteps mar Pennsylvania's funding of voting machines [opinion]

LancasterOnline - 07-16


Pennsylvania will issue a bond to assist counties with the ongoing purchases of new voting systems that include a paper trail, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf announced July 9. Through the bond, the state will have a fund of $90 million to reimburse counties for 60% of their actual costs in replacing voting machines — fulfilling an unfunded mandate handed down by the Wolf administration in 2018. In June, the Lancaster County Board of Commissioners approved a nearly $3 million contract for new voting equipment that will be put into service in November.
