From Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

A recent report by the Alliance for Securing Democracy, Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, Pitt Cyber and the R Street Institute confirms what local election officials in Pennsylvania have seen firsthand: The funding provided by Congress for election administration through the CARES Act was vital, but it will not be enough to protect election integrity and public health in November’s general election. The report found that Pennsylvania’s $14.2 million federal grant would cover only 16% to 18% of what is needed to conduct safe, healthy and fair elections under pandemic conditions in 2020. And that county election officials will be responsible for the vast majority of these additional election administration costs.
