Pennsylvania State Representative Eugene DePasquale is writing legislation that would allow for early voting in the Commonwealth. Rep. DePasquale said that yesterdays long lines served as more proof to him that Pennsylvanians need more options when it comes to voting in elections. He said early voting is needed because Americans are not living the same lifestyles that they were 50 years ago. He also thinks early voting will increase voter turnout and participation. He has not finished drafting his legislation and has not spoken with his colleagues about it but Governor Rendell has supported the concept of early voting in the past.
