House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: March 26, 2019 03:26 PM
From: Representative Jim Cox
To: All House members
Subject: Voting Equipment Integrity
In the near future I intend to introduce legislation that will amend the Pennsylvania Election Code to improve the integrity of voting equipment in Pennsylvania. This legislation is based on recommendations found in a study conducted by Joint State Government Commission.

My legislation will require that voting machines purchased in the Commonwealth will produce a permanent paper record for each vote cast. In the event of a recount of an election, the paper record would be used to verify the accuracy of the votes cast on the voting equipment.

Pennsylvanians deserve to know that the integrity of their votes are being protected. Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1212
