EAC Plain Language Initiative

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission is committed to providing the public information and documents written in clear, plain language. We view the use of plain language as essential to achieve our goals of transparency and excellent customer service.

Our Commitment

The Plain Writing Act of 2010 requires federal agencies to use "clear government communication that the public can understand and use." EAC is committed to writing and communicating in plain language using the Federal Plain Language Guidelines. We are currently reviewing our documents and website to make sure that clear, precise language is used. Sometimes it is necessary to use complex information to explain technical topics, such as the voting system testing and certification process, but using plain language whenever possible will make these topics accessible and understood.

How You Can Help

We need your feedback to determine if we are meeting the goal of writing in plain language. Let us know if you have trouble understanding our documents or language on the website. Also, please contact us if we haven't written a document in plain language.
