EAC Research Update

The EAC, as mandated in the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), is responsible for collecting information about election administration issues and providing that information to congress, election officials and the public. In an effort to meet this requirement, the EAC is preparing to issue a new survey to election officials.

This survey, Election Administration in Urban and Rural Areas, is currently out for the first of two public comment periods to meet Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) requirements. The EAC anticipates that OMB approval will be granted in early summer and expects to send the survey to local election officials nationwide during the summer of 2012.

The data received from this survey will be analyzed to assess the differences in voter outreach activities and election personnel needs in urban and rural areas.  The EAC hopes to supplement the survey data with interviews with local election officials.  The EAC will gather all of this information and prepare a report for release as soon as it is approved by EAC Commissioners.
