Publications from the former FEC Office of Election Administration
The EMG Program is pleased to make available the following publications from the former FEC Office of Election Administration. While most of the information contained in these publications precedes the passage of the Help America Vote Act of 2002, readers can still find information that is relevant to the effective administration of elections today. They also help provide a historical framework to current practices and understanding of how the electoral system has evolved from 1979 to today.
EAC posted these reports and studies as part of its clearinghouse function. EAC did not review the information for quality and does not endorse the reports and studies. The functions and responsibilities of the former FEC Office of Election Administration were transferred to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) upon the establishment of EAC according to the provisions of the Help America Vote Act of 2002.
