State Administrative Complaint Procedures

HAVA requires that states establish a procedure for voters to lodge complaints concerning the voting process. Specifically, states receiving HAVA funds must establish administrative procedures so that “…any person who believes that there is a violation of any provision of title III (including a violation which has occurred, is occurring, or is about to occur) may file a complaint." See Section 402 of HAVA for a complete list of requirements for these procedures.

When states apply for HAVA funding, they submit their complaint procedures to EAC. You may view a state’s procedures by accessing its HAVA State Plan or by contacting the state elections board. Voters who wish to file a complaint should contact their state directly.
