Public Hearing on Various Election Topics Impacting Pennsylvania

Senate State Government Committee

North Office Building, Hearing Room 1

Public Hearing on Various Election Topics Impacting Pennsylvania

 

The topic of the hearing will be an overview of various election topics impacting Pennsylvania. The purpose of the hearing is that, given that it will hopefully be the first of many hearings on election issues, this hearing will serve as the one that provides an overview. While topics discussed at the hearing will include topics such as alternative methods of voting and delivery, as well as poll workers, the hearing is not tied specifically to any legislation. Going forward, the feedback we receive will also be helpful in formulating ideas for future hearings.

The hearing will be a panel discussion, with a tentative agenda as follows:

11:00 – 11:15  

Opening Remarks from Senator Folmer and Senator Williams

11:15-11:25
