Voting reform measures possibly headed to November ballots in Allegheny County

Two petition measures are simultaneously progressing through the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County councils with the goals of enacting election reforms.

Pittsburgh City Council this morning approved of a petition from residents to request a public hearing in front of council to put a question regarding the city’s voting machines on the ballot this November. The ballot resolution requests that “voters be provided with and use new voting equipment for the 2020 presidential election cycle… that utilizes a human-readable, voter-verifiable paper records.”
