Tioga County Election Audit Request

The Board of Commissioners has received many inquiries about the request for an audit of our election equipment and we want the citizens of Tioga County to know the following information about that:


We have not received a request from the Pennsylvania Senate or from any Senate Committee.  We have not received a subpoena for any information.  What we received was a letter from a single senator.  


Against that, we have a directive from the Secretary of State that she will decertify our voting machines if we provide the requested information.  She has actual authority to do that and nothing in the information request addresses what would happen if our voting machines are decertified.


We are therefore following the Secretary's directive because we have a responsibility to ensure that our citizens can vote in the next election. That is not political, it is simply our job.

The cost of replacing the machines if they were decertified is approximately $1,070,000. We also have a contract with our current vendor under which our warranty likely would be voided if we provide 3rd party access.


In addition, if we had to buy new machines, we would need them in place by the end of August due to the time it takes the election workers to prepare them for the Fall election, in part because we need to prepare and send overseas ballots to active duty military personnel.


The Tioga County Board of Commissioners are proud of the citizens of Tioga County for the great job they are doing to help neighbors and to prevent the spread of COVID-19.   

County facilities are open to the public, with the exception of the Tioga County Prison and the Department of Emergency Services.  These two facilities are open by appointment only.  

Anyone who is not fully vaccinated is required to wear a mask while in a County facility. 

The Board of Commissioners created a COVID-19 Task Force with several local health care professionals.  The goal is to closely monitor the situation, help fill needs where possible, and communicate to the public.  Visit the Task Force site on Facebook:  Tioga County PA Covid-19 Task Force

Tioga County was formed on March 26, 1804 from parts of Lycoming County.   The name, derived from an Native American word meaning "the forks of a stream", honors the Tioga River.


Wellsboro, the county seat, lies just 12 miles east of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, one of state’s most spectacular natural attractions.  While you’re visiting the Canyon, be sure to enjoy the charming and historic appeal reflected by the town’s Victorian architecture, tree-lined streets, and old fashioned gas lights. 

With seven lakes and thousands of acres of state forest land throughout the county, there is always room for campers, hikers, bikers, and fishers to spread out and enjoy the peaceful serenity of nature.
