The PA Secretary of the State would simply be the person who pulls names out of a hat, figuratively, to see who serves on the commission.
Overseeing elections and voter registration is an existing function of the PA Department of State, so it will administer the selection of commission members using a straightforward process:
- Taking applications from individual citizens who want to serve on the commission
- Determining whether they meet the qualifications specified by the state constitution and additional criteria to be set by the legislature
- Dividing the qualified applicants into pools based on their voter registrations
- Randomly drawing the names from those pools
