Changes could be coming to the way Pennsylvanians vote

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Changes could be coming to the way we vote.

Voting machine technology was the focus of a state House meeting Tuesday.

The types of machines are chosen and paid for by counties and can be expensive and unreliable. Now, lawmakers are considering a task force to find solutions.

“Pennsylvania has the same problem most other states have and that is technology is moving so quickly that machines are becoming outdated very fast and some of the machines and some of the software we’re using can’t even be serviced anymore,” Barry Kauffman of Common Cause PA said. “The companies that provide that software won’t even service it anymore.”

No changes will be made before this year’s general election on Nov. 8.
