PHILADELPHIA — A coalition of Pennsylvania voting rights groups and community organizations is calling on state lawmakers to stop their attacks on voting rights. In a letter directed to leaders from both houses of the Pennsylvania Legislature, the coalition sounded the alarm about anti-voter developments stemming from a sham review of the 2020 election.

Most recently, a Republican-controlled senate committee issued invasive subpoenas that demand private information of millions of voters in the state. This was just the latest attempt to deny the will of the people by questioning legitimate election results, wasting time and limited taxpayer funds.

“Contrary to the narrative that has been pushed for months, Pennsylvania’s election system is not broken,” the group said. “There are common-sense steps we can take to safeguard our elections and Americans’ right to vote, but you are not pursuing these kinds of reforms. The freedom to choose our leaders, to speak up for what we believe in, is foundational to American democracy.”
