HARRISBURG – In the months since Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed the House Bill 1300 – PA’s Voting Rights Protection Act, York County Rep. Seth Grove reintroduced the measure as House Bill 1800. In June, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Wolf is now open to enhanced voter ID requirements. The Act is predicated on the House State Government Committee’s extensive election oversight hearings which focused on how elections in PA are administered. Language in the bill is updated to improve poll worker retention efforts, modernize polling location language, and modernize delivery of ballots and supplies to the Judge of Elections. County District Attorneys would also designate a prosecutor as a county election integrity officer and county board of elections shall include them in all their correspondences/election processes. County election equipment funding would be through the Commonwealth Financing Authority and an appropriation of $3.1 million would be issued to operate the Bureau of Election Audits.
