Nat’l Election Def. Coal. v. Boockvar

The plaintiffs’ core missions include helping members of the electorate exercise their right to vote in free and fair elections and ensuring that elections are conducted on secure, accessible, transparent, and auditable systems. The defendant was the Secretary of State, who is charged with the supervision and administration of Pennsylvania’s election laws. At issue were voting machines that were utilized in Philadelphia. Queue eye rolls. The plaintiffs claimed that the voting machines did not provide acceptable ballot security because the paper path was insecure, the administrator access panel was insecure, and the test deck feature was insecure. The plaintiffs invoked the Commonwealth Court’s original jurisdiction, and the Secretary filed preliminary objections. The Court overruled nearly all of the objections, permitting the suit to continue. Their next general meeting will be in the Capitol Rotunda after closing time for those interested in participating in the plaintiffs’ activities. Viking helmets are optional.
