PA county elections officials ask lawmakers for help ahead of this year’s election

They may be easy to miss when federal candidates aren’t campaigning, but elections happen at least twice a year in Pennsylvania – and the people who run them are gearing up for their next race in May while still recovering from a dizzying 2020. County election officials from across Pennsylvania told lawmakers on Tuesday that they’re burnt out and beleaguered after rolling out a new vote-by-mail program during the contentious 2020 race. The local officials said they felt defeated by vagaries and tight deadlines in the law the General Assembly passed in 2019, which they spent much of the last year asking lawmakers to amend.
