Online voter services restored

Election applications are fully operational following a weekend-long outage

The Pennsylvania Department of State announced this morning that online voter services and election applications are fully operational following an outage that began late Saturday.

Multiple commonwealth agencies were impacted by the outage that was due to an equipment failure at a data center managed by Unisys for the commonwealth.

“The outage was due to an issue with the contractor’s equipment, and there is no evidence of malicious interference,” said Secretary Kathy Boockvar. “All data was backed up, as always.”

Voters can once again go online to votesPA.com to register to vote, apply for a mail ballot, or check their voter registration, among other services.

The Department of State’s professional licensing services are among the applications that are still affected. The Commonwealth Office of Information Technology and Unisys are working to restore those functions as quickly as possible.

Online services for the departments of Revenue and Human Services and the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board are also affected.
