EAC Will Post and Distribute State Reports on Voting Systems PDF  | Print |  Email

The United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC) has adopted a policy authorizing staff to post and distribute voting system reports and studies that have been conducted or commissioned by a state or local government.

"EAC believes it is important to provide a central location for election officials to post reports about their voting systems that can be shared with election officials throughout the nation and the public," said Chairwoman Donetta Davidson.  "This will provide an opportunity for election officials to share critical information and good ideas.

"As part of our role as the national clearinghouse for election information, EAC will continue to explore ways to share and distribute information about how, where and when we vote."

The new policy is part of the EAC's clearinghouse responsibilities under Section 202 of the Help America Vote Act.  To be considered for posting on the EAC website, a state or local government must submit the report to the EAC chair or executive director and certify that the report reflects their experience operating voting systems or implementing EAC's voluntary voting systems guidelines.

EAC is also operating the federal government's first voting system certification program.
