Bills to change voting in Pennsylvania

Local News

Some state senators are looking to try to make voting easier in Pennsylvania.

A group of Republican and Democratic lawmakers announced a package of bills that will be introduced this legislative session.

The bills will do things like allow for curbside voters, consolidate smaller voting precincts. and amend the Pennsylvania constitution to allow for “no excuse” absentee ballots.

“The goal in all of this is, one, secure elections. Every person’s vote counts. Making it easier for people to vote.” Says Republican Senator Mike Folmer, “And, possibly, saving our counties monies.” 

Right now there are a number of restrictions as far as who can vote by absentee ballot in our state.

 27 other states and the District of Columbia already have “no excuse” absentee ballots.
