Lunch w/ Lawmakers: Making Elections Work Better in PA

Business for America

Location: Online

Building on a series of bipartisan dialogues, join BFA Pennsylvania for the first in our series of “Lunch with Lawmakers” which bring together different perspectives at the intersection of business and politics. Join us on February 17th when we are bringing together two of the Pennsylvania House’s most knowledgeable members about needed reforms to the way the state conducts its elections.

The 2023–24 legislative session in Harrisburg will consider a range of proposals aimed at changing how citizens vote and how election officials tally and report the results. With a new governor, secretary of state, and House speaker governing as an Independent, changes are certain.

To shed light on these developments, State Representatives Jared Solomon (D – 202) and Jesse Topper (R – 78) will discuss issues such as voter ID, pre-canvassing absentee ballots, protecting election workers, standardizing the procedures counties use to run elections, clarifying the rules concerning mail-in ballots, and ensuring election integrity.

As BFA Pennsylvania prepares to engage businesses across the state in 2023 to support needed election reforms, we look forward to hearing from Representatives Solomon and Topper about what’s likely to happen in Harrisburg and how business can support these initiatives.
