Major Flaw In Pennsylvania Online Voter Registration Puts User Data at Risk PDF  | Print |  Email
By VotePA   
March 19, 2008
UPDATE on the PA Department of State Online Registration form.

There has apparently been a very bad security hole discovered. This problem apparently made it possible for anyone to view data of others who signed up online. It also apparently could allow a malicious person to print out "second step" forms for these new voters, change data (such as political party), forge a signature, and send the the "second step" form in to County Election Offices to complete a registration change. 

If a fraudulent party change was made without the voter's knowledge, it would have the effect of disenfranchising that voter from the Primary of his or her choice, and of course a fraudulent address change could disenfranchise a voter completely.

The online registration form on the Department of State website has been taken down completely. That page currently reads: "The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania web site that you are trying to reach is either not available or is undergoing maintenance. Please try back later. Thank you for your patience." 

URGENT: In an effort to reach anyone who may have used the online registration form, please spread the word far and wide that a SIGNED, PAPER COPY of the registration form must be RECEIVED at each voter's respective County Election Office by March 24. 

The pdf file of paper form that can be printed out by a voter is still up on the Department of State website and should be OK to use.

VotePA has a page of information HERE:

Voters who register correctly will receive a voter registration card with their political party and precinct number on it. All voters should learn the correct polling place for their assigned precinct prior to election day.
