PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — With less than a month to go before the general election, a computer problem was causing issues for Pennsylvania voters.
According to the state, this outage began late Saturday.
The Department of State tells KDKA that all voter registration services were restored Monday morning as of 7:00 a. m.
The outage was impacting multiple state agencies including the Department of State, which oversees voting and election materials.
Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State says this was due to an issue with contractors’ equipment, and there was no evidence of malicious interference.
All its data is backed up.
Many of the Department of State’s election-related and professional licensing services were affected, including online voter registration and the online application for mail-in ballots.
According to the Department of State, its professional licensing services are still impacted by the outage. Online services for the Department of Revenue, Human Services, and the PA Liquor Control Board are affected.
The Commonwealth Office of Information Technology and contractors are working to restore all services as quickly as possible.
The state’s Secretary of Administration says they had been working around the clock to get this problem solved.
