LAA Scores Another Victory for Election Transparency in Pennsylvania

Washington, D.C. – Look Ahead America (LAA) increased transparency once again in Pennsylvania’s voter data.

After Look Ahead America identified important missing information in Pennsylvania’s voter database, the state’s Office of Administration made another update to remedy the problem. The email acknowledging the change can be found here: https://lookaheadamerica.org/pacleanup/.

Ian Camacho, Director of Research, made the following comment:

In 2020, one reason people had an issue with the election results in Pennsylvania was due to a lack transparency and officials’ statements that conflicted with the official records.

To the credit of Jere Ilene Matthews, the Open Data Officer of the Office of Administration, she incorporated our follow up request to explain all the mailing codes and the UOCAVA types.

LAA’s earlier Pennsylvania Report highlighted the issues regarding the lack of transparency in 2020, and we know that our work moving forward will help all researchers better understand the outcome and results of Pennsylvania’s elections without having to guess.
