Final Pennsylvania county OKs new paper-trail voting system

News

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A decision this week by Dauphin County to buy new a paper-trail voting system means all 67 Pennsylvania counties have taken action under a state law that helps fund the upgrades.

The Wolf administration said Tuesday the vote is a milestone toward ensuring the integrity of future elections in the state.

A state law is providing $90 million toward purchase of new machines, but counties had to act by the end of 2019 to qualify for the money and avoid potential litigation.
