State approves third voting machine model

The Pennsylvania Department of State announced this week the certification of a third new voting machine model that includes copies of paper ballots. The news comes as Gov. Tom Wolf urges counties to upgrade from voting machines that store all votes electronically, citing concerns over security or votes lost to corrupted data.

Acting Secretary of State Robert Torres approved a machine made by Unisyn Voting Solutions on Dec. 14; the state previously had approved another machine from Unisyn and one from manufacturer ES&S earlier in 2018, a department news release states.

The release states two other machines are expected to be certified in January, and department spokeswoman Wanda Murren said certification for a sixth machine is expected later this year.

The department announced in April that counties across the state have until the end of 2019 to replace paperless machines, and that all new machines must be ready for use in the 2020 presidential election, the release adds.
