EAC 2014 Election Calendar

from: Jessica Myers on Jan 16, 2014


EAC Election Calendar
Every Monday the EAC will post an Election Update blog about upcoming elections and election deadlines. The information for these blogs comes from State election websites, Twitter and discussions with election officials. One of the resources the EAC created to keep track of all of this information is an Election calendar. This calendar tracks election dates, absentee ballot deadlines, voter registration deadlines and early voting dates. EAC is delighted to share it with you today!
This key will help you understand the abbreviations in the calendar:
·         Elections are red
o    G = General
o    P = Primary
o    S = Special Election
·         Absentee Ballot deadlines are purple
o    ABS = Absentee Ballot deadline (request and/or return)
·         Early voting/in person absentee voting periods are orange
o    EV = Early Voting/In Person Absentee voting period
·         Voter registration deadlines are green
o    VR = Voter Registration deadline
·         State abbreviations are used for each entry in the pdf version (e.g., DC = Washington, D.C.)
If you have additional questions about a deadline, please contact your State or local election office.
If you have additional questions about the calendar, please contact Jessica Myers at jmyers@eac.gov or via Twitter (@EACgov).

The purpose of this blog is to share useful, innovative and practical information about voting and elections with interested parties. EAC also intends to provide this forum to host conversations with the public. EAC encourages the submission of comments from the public and hopes that interested individuals will provide submissions on a regular basis. EAC also recognizes the value of providing this forum to facilitate discussions concerning best practices, solutions, and innovative ideas in election administration.

This is a moderated blog, and EAC will exercise discretion in determining which comments it will and will not post. As a moderated blog, EAC will review all comments before posting to ensure that commenters have complied with EAC’s Blog Code of Conduct. EAC’s decision to post or not post a comment is final and may not be appealed or reconsidered.

EAC expects that participants will treat each other, as well as our agency and our employees with respect. EAC recognizes that the Internet is a 24/7 medium and comments are welcome at any time; however, we will typically review and post comments only during normal business hours.

You will be asked to re-type a grouping of letters and/or numbers, which indicates that you agree to EAC’s Code of Conduct and also serves as an affirmation that you are older than 13 years of age. Your comment will not be transmitted to EAC for review and posting unless and until you successfully re-type the grouping of letters and/or numbers provided on your comment submission form.
