Pennsylvania Senate approves ban on private election funding grants and ending ballot drop boxes

Pennsylvania’s Republican-led Senate is advancing a pair of controversial election law changes. Under one, which passed 37-12, county election departments could not use private grant money to help fund their operations, while another approved mostly along party lines would effectively eliminate the ability for counties to set up ballot drop boxes for absentee and mail-in voters. A spokesman for majority House Republicans said lawmakers there would review the bills upon their arrival in that chamber. Gov. Tom Wolf’s office said it opposes both, but did not indicate whether Wolf would veto either or both.
