United States Election Assistance Comittee

The EAC Official Blog

Language Resources for Election Officials

from: on Oct 13, 2011

Please be aware that based on the 2010 census, the U.S. Bureau of the Census has released determinations as to which political subdivisions are subject to the minority language assistance provisions of Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, as amended. Additional information and a listing of the states and political subdivisions obligated to comply with the requirements can be found in the Federal Register

EAC's language assistance resources may assist states and political subdivisions newly covered under Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act. The EAC’s Glossaries of Election Terminology (PDFs and an online tool) Voters Guides to Federal Elections, and National Mail Voter Registration Form are available in numerous languages and free of charge. For additional information on these EAC resources, contact Marcy Reedy at mreedy@eac.gov.
