Local Lawmaker Doubts Need For New Voting Machines

State Senator John Gordner says he's working on legislation that would put a stop to Governor Wolf's order for all counties to have new voting machines with voter verifiable paper trails by the 2020 presidential election. Instead, Gordner says legislation he plans to introduce in January would establish a bipartisan commission which would look into the issue and make recommendations to the General Assembly. Gordner questions the need to have new voting machines in place for the 2020 election and shares counties' concerns about how they will pay for the new machines.
