Pennsylvania GOP threatens lawsuit over voting delays

York

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Due to the voting issues that transpired in York County, the Pennsylvania Republican Party is threatening to sue the state.

The GOP claims that due to errors and delays in voting in York County and a few other areas, people left polls in frustration over long wait times and ballots were not properly handled.

The long wait caused the Department of State to direct the judge of elections to have votes collected into a bag and scanned on the voters’ behalf. The GOP is claiming that is a violation of the Election Code.

The party is placing blame on Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf for requiring new voting machines.

York County’s board of commissioners has issued an apology for problems that arose at polls.
