The trainings are being held to educate residents and train poll workers for the 2020 Primary.

Delaware County Council unanimously voted to purchase the Hart Verity 2.3.4 Voting System in October 2019, following a recommendation by the County’s Board of Elections. The system, certified by the PA Department of State, meets the Governor’s mandate for a verifiable paper trail. It includes plain text which voters can read to verify their vote before casting their ballot. The new voting machines will be used in the 2020 Primary, as mandated by Governor Wolf.

The County’s Board of Elections, Delaware County Council and the County’s Executive Director began researching new voting systems in 2017 to identify systems that would meet the new federal and state requirements. In Pennsylvania, every voting system and paper ballot must include plain text that voters can read to verify their choices before casting their ballot. Election officials will also use the plain text to perform pre-election testing and post-election audits and recounts.
