Working to ensure Pennsylvania’s elections are secure, the House State Government Committee will take up three election-related bills at its next meeting.
House Bill 34
would establish guidelines for the transportation of ballots to ensure election ballots are not misplaced, tampered with, over/under counted or delayed in shipping. It would require ballots to be transported in sealed containers with numbered plastic tags and a Bill of Lading, essentially a manifest and receipt, with each shipment.
House Bill 143
would require the Department of Health and the Department of State to work together to streamline the process of removing deceased voters from the rolls. Specifically, it would mandate a monthly report of the names of deceased individuals to be removed from the voter database.
House Bill 2484
would extend the requirements for filing a statement of financial interests to all candidates, including write-in candidates who advanced in primary elections or who appear on the ballot in a General Election.
Chairman Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) will be joined by members of the committee.
Monday, Sept. 12, at 9 a.m.
Room G-50, Irvis Office Building, Capitol Complex, Harrisburg
The hearing will be streamed live at PAHouseGOP.com
