Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: July 14, 2021 10:38 AM
From: Senator Cris Dush
To: All Senate members
Subject: Ballot Integrity and Security Measures
Soon, I will introduce legislation regarding Pennsylvania implementing multiple security measures on ballots in Pennsylvania. After the General election of 2020, it has been brought to the attention of the people of the Commonwealth that we need to take action to ensure the fairness, sanctity, and validity of our elections.

The bill will ensure that all ballots will include multiple security measures to prevent the manipulation and counterfeiting of ballots that will be used by the electors of the Commonwealth. Unique identifiers, QR codes, holographic images and watermarks have been used in other states to provide anti-fraud measures on mail-in ballots and need to be adopted in Pennsylvania.

Now, more than ever we need to safeguard our elections due to rapidly advancing technologies and the expansion of our ability to vote by mail in Pennsylvania. Free and fair elections are one of the reasons that the United States of America is a bastion of liberty, freedom, and democracy.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this vital piece of legislation.
