Harrisburg, PA (AP Newswire) – Gov. Tom Wolf says it’s the “right thing” for every Pennsylvania county to buy new voting machines in time for the 2020 elections, although he acknowledges it’s a costly proposition.

The governor told The Associated Press that one big challenge his administration faces is helping counties afford the estimated $125 million tab.

The Democrat says the federal government should contribute more than $14 million.

He’s committed to asking lawmakers for state aid to cover at least half of the cost.
