EAC Seeks Comments on 2014 EAVS / UOCAVA Survey

from: Bryan Whitener on Aug 01, 2013

EAC seeks public comments on proposed information collection for the 2014 Election Administration and Voting Survey Instrument. This proposed survey reflects the consolidation of the 2012 Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) local election official survey into the proposed EAC survey.  The 2014 EAC survey is intended to meet the requirements of both the EAC and FVAP to collect election-related statistics from local election officials. This effort completes a process begun when FVAP, the EAC and the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) entered into an agreement in 2011 to work toward a single survey instrument.  In response to requests from State and local officials, EAC, FVAP and NASED reached a mutual agreement to combine post-election survey collection efforts in order to reduce the overall burden placed election officials.

The 60-day public comment period ends Sept 16, 2013. See the Federal Register Notice for details and instructions on submitting comments.
