Pennsylvania Election Officials Must Act Now to Comply with New Registration Law

All Voting is Local, the ACLU of Pennsylvania, the Campaign Legal Center (CLC), Ceiba, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and Protect Democracy sent a letter to election officials in seven Pennsylvania counties Friday warning that voters will be disenfranchised if those jurisdictions do not comply with the commonwealth’s new law--Act 77--which shortens the window to process voter registrations from 30 days to 15.
