From the PA House Democratic Policy Committee:

DEFENDING DEMOCRACY

The November 2020 election was the most secure in history, with record turnout across Pennsylvania. Before Election Day, county officials asked the legislature to make some small changes that would allow for a smoother process for voters at the polls and for the ballot count that followed. Republican leaders teamed up to deny those calls for improvements, and some went even farther by attacking and undermining the outcome by taking to social media with bogus claims or turning to the courts with baseless arguments. They cast doubt on our fundamental democracy.

After hosting two House Democratic Policy Committee hearings securing feedback from state officials, bipartisan county election officials, members of congress, professors, and experts on hate speech, House Democrats are taking action that will streamline processes, maintain security, and defend democracy.

Legislation is being introduced to protect the security and integrity of each vote. These bills cut through bureaucratic red tape making it easier for individuals to lawfully and securely cast their ballot.

Voting should be convenient and secure; anything else is voter suppression.
