Price Tag Stumbles The Progress Of Swapping Pa Voting Machines

04.13.18 | Terry Diener

Democratic Gov. Tom wolf wants Pennsylvania's counties to replace their electronic voting systems with machines that leave a verifiable paper trail by the end of 2019.

Wolf says his goal is to make it affordable for counties to get a good deal on the machines. He says he hasn't gotten to the point yet of asking the Legislature for money.

The County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania says the single greatest impediment to voting system upgrades is the lack of a funding source to meet the estimated $125 million price tag.
