EAC Approves Policy Clarification Regarding States' Use of Remaining HAVA Funds PDF  | Print |  Email

At their public meeting in Denver, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission unanimously approved a proposed policy clarification regarding states' use of remaining HAVA funds.

The action of the Commission reverses a earlier staff recommendation issued last year that had determined that it was "unreasonable" for states to allocate remaining HAVA Title II funds replace voting equipment that had been purchased with previous HAVA Tile II requirements payments.

The policy reversal could have a significant impact on voting system decisions in several states, notably California, Iowa, Tennessee, and Kentucky.

EAC Chair Rosemary Rodriguez had requested an opinion on the use of HAVA funds to purchase replacement equipment from the Government Accountability Office and they responded affirmatively.
