House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: December 8, 2020 10:25 AM
From: Representative Michael J. Puskaric
To: All House members
Subject: Abolishing the No Excuse Mail in Vote former HB 2971
Soon I plan on introducing legislation to repeal the mail-in voting provisions contained in Act 77 of 2019. The year 2020 revealed the current administration's will to overstep and chip away at our fundamental beliefs of the separation of powers and the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court has rewritten the provisions of Act 77 in a manner that makes them inconsistent and unworkable. As a result, Act 77 was not implemented the way the General Assembly intended it to. During this past Presidential Election, we witnessed mass confusion and mail-in ballot irregularities and I know that my district office was not alone in getting unprecedented amounts of phone calls from concerned constituents about election fraud through this mail-in ballot system.

As representatives of the people, we must listen to the concerns of our constituents and act swiftly to make certain that future elections are safe, secure. I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.

Introduced as HB25
