EAC Report Now on EAC Website; Has Been Posted on Eagleton Site PDF  | Print |  Email
By Warren Stewart, Verified Voting Foundation   
December 04, 2007
Following up on the post at Rick Hasen's Election Law Blog that I cross-posted here yesterday about a report on provisional voting commissioned by the EAC but not appearing on the EAC website, Rick and I received the following email from Jeannie Layson of the EAC (reprinted here with permission):
    Per your posts today, just wanted to let you know that I have added these materials to our FOIA Reading Room here. I will add other links to the material in other places on the site, but I wanted to let you know that it is immediately available. The EAC has been providing the draft report to anyone who asked for it, but it also should have been posted in the Reading Room. (The draft report was presented in May 2006 at a Standards Board meeting that was open to the public.) The web site is my responsibility, so your criticism should be directed at me for this oversight, not the EAC. For your information, this material has been available on Eagleton's website for quite some time. However, it should have been posted on our site as well. Please don't hesitate to contact me in the future if you are looking for documents or materials or have questions or concerns about the EAC web site -- I'd be glad to assist you. Thank you for your consideration in this matter, and call me if you have any questions.
Rick had not asked the EAC for the document, but was told by someone else that the material was not provided when requested. In any case, it is good to see that this material is now available on the EAC website and open to scrutiny.
