New Voting System – Montgomery County

Montgomery County has a new voter-marked paper ballot system with a
verifiable paper trail.

The new system replaced the electronic push-button voting machines the
County purchased in 1996 which were nearing the end of their useful life. The old machines also did not meet the state mandate for counties to have a voting system with a verifiable paper trail in place for the 2020 Presidential
election.

With the new system, most voters will use a pen to fill out a ballot and
have an opportunity to check it for accuracy before submitting it to a scanner that tabulates the votes and keeps the ballot in a secure container for audits or recounts.

Narberth Avenue Bridge Update

The Borough-owned bridge is scheduled to begin demolition and replacement in 2020. In order to meet that deadline, final design plans are being finished by the Boroughs design team from Pennoni Associates and will be reviewed by PennDOT. As that date approaches, the Borough will be scheduling a public meeting to go over project scope, timing, and impacts. In the meantime, the Borough continues to work with its local, regional, and state transportation planning partners to advocate for the timely replacement of this important piece of regional infrastructure. Please visit the Borough’s website in the coming weeks for more information and about how you can help keep this project moving forward.
