House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: April 20, 2021 11:27 AM
From: Representative David M. Maloney, Sr.
To: All House members
Subject: Secure and Fair Elections Act
It is vitally important that our citizens have confidence that all votes counted in elections were fairly cast by individuals in Pennsylvania who are eligible to vote.
To this end, I will introduce legislation in the near future which will require that voters registering to vote demonstrate that they are U.S. citizens before their registrations are considered completed.  To make this process simple for individuals registering to vote, the legislation details the large number of ways that a potential voter may demonstrate citizenship.
Additionally, the legislation requires that copies of birth certificates for those seeking to register to vote be provided at no cost to potential voters.  Furthermore, the legislation requires the Secretary of State and County Boards of Elections to attempt to obtain evidence of citizenship on behalf of all applicants who have not completed this requirement themselves.
This common-sense legislation will help ensure the integrity of our electoral system.  Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1334
