Testimony sought in election probe
Oct. 1 deadline to give information
HARRISBURG — Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee Chairman Sen. Cris Dush, R-Jefferson, is urging Pennsylvanians to submit sworn testimony by Thursday regarding problems they have personally experienced with the state’s election system.
Voters should submit information only if they experienced irregularities or other election improprieties firsthand. State residents can share their stories and contact information at https://intergovernmental.pasenategop.com/electioninvestigation/.
The information will help lawmakers develop potential improvements to state law to bolster election security. The Oct. 1 date matches the deadline for the Department of State to respond to subpoenas issued by the committee last week.
Dush noted that testimony is only being accepted from Pennsylvania residents, and the infractions must have been witnessed in person or affected the state resident personally. In addition, members of the public should submit testimony on the webpage only if they are comfortable signing an affidavit and potentially testifying under oath at a Senate committee hearing under penalty of perjury.
