Washington, DC, 20005


EAC's Sept 21 public meeting and hearing focuses on our Quality Monitoring Program, the VVSG 1.1 and proposed draft NVRA regulations.

Watch the webcast of this meeting here.

The Commission will hold a public meeting to hold a discussion on and consider the following matters: (1) the EAC Quality Monitoring: Creating a Successful Partnership, and (2) Voluntary Voting Systems Guidelines 1.1 Policy Issues Update.  Commissioners will consider other administrative matters.

The Commission will conduct a public hearing to receive testimony on proposed draft National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) regulations. Members of the public who wish to speak at the hearing, regarding proposed NVRA regulations may send a request to participate to the EAC via email to testimony@eac.gov by 5:00 PM EDT September 20, 2010.  Members of the public may also sign up at the public meeting as long as they do so before the public meeting adjourns and the public hearing begins.  Due to time constraints, the EAC can select no more than ten participants amongst the volunteers who request to participate. The selected volunteers will be allotted three-minutes each to share their viewpoint. Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. However, to maximize diversity of input, only one participant per organization or entity will be chosen if necessary. Participants may also submit written testimony to be published at www.eac.gov.  All requests must include a description of what will be said, contact information which will be used to notify the requestor with status of request (phone number on which a message may be left or e-mail), and include the subject/attention line (or on the envelope if by mail): Testimony on proposed NVRA regulations. Please note that these testimonies will be made available to the public at www.eac.gov

Written testimony from members of the public, regarding proposed NVRA regulations will also be accepted. This testimony will be included as part of the written record of the hearing, and available on our website. Written testimony must be submitted before the end of the public hearing, and received by 4:30 pm EDT on September 21, 2010. Written testimony should be submitted via e-mail at testimony@eac.gov, via mail addressed to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission 1201 New York Avenue NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20005, or by fax at 202-566-1392. All correspondence that contains written testimony must have in the subject/attention line (or on the envelope if by mail): Written testimony on proposed NVRA regulations.
