Sue Helm (R-Dauphin/Lebanon) issued the following statement regarding the hearing:
“The inconsistencies we saw in this past election threaten to jeopardize the integrity of future elections,” said Helm. “I look forward to addressing the issues examined during these hearings and working to restore the public’s trust.”
