HARRISBURG (AP) – Tioga County is formally declining to participate in a “forensic investigation” of the state’s 2020 presidential election, saying it would need new voting machines paid for and delivered within three weeks. The three county commissioners had said two weeks ago that they would not allow third-party access to the county’s voting machines for fear of seeing them decertified by the state weeks before preparations must begin for November’s election. In a letter, the commissioners said they were declining the request “at this time” without new voting machines paid for and delivered by Aug. 20.
