– The House State Government Committee met Thursday for a hearing with Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and Deputy Secretary for Elections and Commissions Jonathan Marks. The committee discussed inconsistencies and misinterpretations of election guidance leading up to, and through, the 2020 General Election. State Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder) issued the following statement regarding the hearing:
“Concerns have been raised over inconsistencies in the Department of State’s guidance during the 2020 General Election and how it was implemented in each county. We must address these concerns to ensure the integrity and uniformity of future elections,” said Culver. “These hearings will examine those inconsistencies at all levels of the election process and help develop plans to address them as needed.”
The committee has scheduled more than a dozen hearings in the coming weeks to examine various elements of the state’s election laws and practices. The topic of the next hearing, scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 28, will be the SURE (Statewide Uniform Registry of Electors) system and other election-related information technology.
All hearings are streamed live, and can be viewed later, on the Facebook page of House State Government Committee Chairman, Rep. Seth Grove.
