Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: December 2, 2022 12:56 PM
From: Senator Doug Mastriano
To: All Senate members
Subject: Ensuring Election Machines are made with American Equipment
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to require new voting machines to be manufactured in the United States and sold by a vendor with a primary place of business within the United States.

Major voting machine vendors often utilize components originating from adversarial nations such as China. This presents a significant national security concern as these components can be difficult to vet and monitor.

My bill will ensure that any new voting machine approved for use in an election in Pennsylvania must be entirely manufactured in the United States by a vendor who is headquartered within the United States.

Please join me as a co-sponsor.  If you have any questions regarding this bill, please contact Joshua Herman in my office at jherman@pasen.gov


Introduced as SB272
