Agenda and Discussion Questions

Premise
Unexpected events happen during elections, as recent earthquakes and hurricanes remind us. Election officials throughout the nation routinely examine past emergencies and anticipate new ones to develop their community’s election contingency plan. In conjunction with National Preparedness Month and in preparation for the 2012 federal elections, the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) hosts a national discussion about contingency planning strategies to prevent or minimize interruptions in voting during an emergency or crisis situation.

Goal
Provide real world contingency planning solutions and strategies to election officials around the country as they prepare for the 2012 federal elections.
