Home Rule Episode 3: What COVID-19 Could Mean for PA Elections

PA lawmakers have taken some steps to shore up the election during the COVID-19 shutdown, but there’s still more to do. In our third episode of Home Rule, we talk to Rep. Kevin Boyle and local election attorney Adam Bonin about the pandemic’s implications for voting, PA’s new vote-by-mail program, the party conventions, and more. 

This episode was recorded about three weeks ago right after the legislature moved the election to June 2nd, so we don't cover some of the more recent big developments like Allegheny County's decision to send all county voters a vote-by-mail application or the lawsuit announced this week, but it still holds up well as an overview of the politics of expanding vote-by-mail in Harrisburg, and we also discuss what's involved in moving the party conventions and the consequences of that.
