Wolf Introduces Election Reforms
“To rebuild trust in Harrisburg, we must have fair and accessible elections for all citizens from our rural communities to our big cities. These reforms have been championed by House and Senate Democrats to modernize our voting laws and put the people of Pennsylvania back in control of our elections. It’s time to remove barriers to voting, end gerrymandering, and curb special interests,” Wolf said in a release outlining the reforms.
Wolf proposed three shifts in voting policies, same day voter registration, automatic voter registration, and no-excuse absentee ballots.
Along with those reforms, Wolf reiterated his push for campaign finance reform by placing limits on campaign contributions and putting restrictions on PACs.
Wolf also pushes for legislative redistricting to be pulled away from a political process and put into the hands of a “independent, bi-partisan commission” to draw the maps.
