Boockvar’s Efforts to Undermine Election Security Continues

(HARRISBURG) – Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-34) issued the following statement after the state Supreme Court decision based on PA Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar’s interpretation that signatures required on mail-in ballots are meaningless.

“Secretary Boockvar’s work to undermine the security features embedded in our Election Code is ongoing. People voting in person are now being held to a higher standard than those who mail in their ballots.

“Never did we contemplate that Secretary Boockvar would interpret the statute in a way which would result in signatures required on the mail-in ballots being meaningless. It’s astonishing the courts have endorsed Secretary Boockvar’s contrived election system that requires matching signatures to vote in person, but mail-in voting is officially a free-for-all.

“This administration’s continued weakening of the voting security features is damaging to the integrity and confidence in our election.”
