Due to time constraints, the EAC can select no more than ten participants amongst the volunteers who request to participate. The selected volunteers will be allotted three-minutes each to share their viewpoint. Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that these testimonies will be made available to the public at www.eac.gov.
Written testimony from members of the public, regarding proposed NVRA regulations will also be accepted.
