McClinton praises Supreme Court ruling on Act 77 as win for PA voters & voting access

HARRISBURG, Aug. 2 -- PA House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton released the following statement today after the PA Supreme Court affirmed that no-excuse mail-in voting is legal and constitutional in Pennsylvania:

“Republican attempts to roll back bipartisan improvements in our election law - improvements that eased access and allowed for greater participation - have been thwarted. Mail-in voting is a safe and secure way that millions of Pennsylvanians have used to exercise their right to vote since the legislature passed the law in 2019. Looking ahead, I will continue to champion measures like the K. Leroy Irvis Voting Rights Protection Act, to further improve access and security, while restoring public faith in our election system and our local election officials.”
