  • 2022 Primary Election Investigation Report

    ​The County of Berks hired outside counsel to review the primary election held on May 17, 2022, following an issue that arose with the electronic pollbooks. The focus of the review was to determine what happened, why it happened and what steps need to be taken to make certain it does not happen again.
