Gov. Wolf: Pass Legislation to Enhance Secure and Efficient Elections

With only seven weeks left before the Nov. 3 election, Governor Tom Wolf is urging immediate legislative action to ensure voters receive their mail-in ballots early and give counties more time to process and count ballots before election day. The governor also reassured Pennsylvanians that in-person voting is safe, and all eligible votes will be counted.

"Voting during a pandemic will be different for all of us, but I remain confident that no matter how you vote - our state's election systems are safe and secure," said Gov. Wolf. "Counting a record number of votes may not be complete on election night, but what's most important is that every vote is counted, and the results are accurate, even if it takes more time than usual.

"We've made great improvements in our elections with mail-in ballots, more security and new voting systems with a paper trail. But this will be a historic election and the nation is watching, so the legislature should take immediate action to make it better. The smart changes I have outlined will strengthen our elections, help people to vote safely from home and allow counties to more efficiently process the surge in ballots so results are available faster."
