EAC is committed to openness and transparency. The OpenEAC portal (eac.gov/open) promotes transparency, public participation and collaboration. Here you can easily access high-value data sets, Freedom of Information Act information, grant amounts and recipients, and federal voting system certification information. You can also learn about our current open-government activities.

Current Activities

Below are a few examples of how we're working to make EAC more transparent and open:

  • Making data sets available, including Administration and Voting Survey results, and making them available in multiple formats.

  • Holding roundtable discussions with stakeholders to gather input on key initiatives.

  • Bringing together practitioners, academics, voter advocates, and manufacturers with differing perspectives to discuss election issues in public forums.

  • Updating our Web site with commission documents, correspondence and news. 

  • Providing on-demand webcasts of our public meetings.

  • Inviting public comments on a variety of proposed policies and initiatives.

Data Sets

Under the Help America Vote Act, EAC is responsible for collecting information about election administration issues and sharing that information with Congress, election officials and the public. Below are high-value data sets on election administration.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Information

EAC's FOIA Reading Room contains our most frequently requested documents on topics such as commission policies and regulations, voting system testing and certification, and research on a variety of election topics.

EAC Grants and Payments

EAC provides information on all federal payments and grants disbursed by EAC to improve election administration in the 54 U.S. states and territories.

Voting System Testing and Certification

An enduring priority of EAC has been to make its federal voting system testing and certification program as transparent and open as possible. Below is just a sampling of the information we provide, from comprehensive voting system test plans and reports to manuals detailing every facet of the certification and lab accreditation process.
