The virtual meeting room opened on Monday, April 26, 2010 and closed on Friday, April 30, 2010. The site was available 24 hours per day during that 5-day period.
The EAC Board of Advisors reviewed and provided comment on a draft version of the EAC Recounts and Contests study. The draft version contained information about the laws and procedures each State uses to govern recounts, contests, and standards for what constitutes a valid vote. The study included best practices that States use with respect to recounts and contests.
The EAC Board of Advisors Virtual Meeting Room was established to enable the Board of Advisors to conduct business in an efficient manner in a public forum, including being able to review and comment on draft documents, when it is not feasible for an in-person board meeting. The Board of Advisors neither took votes nor proposed any resolutions during the 5-day forum of April 26 - April 30, 2010. Members posted comments about the draft version of the Recounts and Contests study.
