EAC Standards Board, Board of Advisors to Meet in Williamsburg

This week in Williamsburg, VA the U.S. Election Assistance Commission takes another step toward restoration of its full function with a two-day meeting to convene the statutory boards established by the Help America Vote Act.

The meeting notice for both sessions notes the need to “organize and select officers following a suspension of activity”- an understatement if I ever saw one – but the fact that these meetings are happening is a positive sign, especially since the new EAC Commissioners made a change to their procedures to ensure that the two Boards can continue their work even if the Commission once again finds itself vacant as in years past.

[Full membership lists taken from the latest lists at EAC.gov follow at the end of the post.]

The meetings will be an opportunity for the Boards to hear from the EAC on various issues including voting system standards – but they also represent a fresh start for the EAC/Board relationship, which was reportedly not as strong as it could be in the past. I’ve heard from several people close to the process that the new Commissioners are interested in enlisting the Boards’ support for their efforts to restore full function to the agency, and relying on the Boards both for counsel as well as outreach to state and local policymakers and election officials on the issues within the EAC’s purview.

I look forward to hearing what emerges from these meetings – but if nothing else it’s yet another encouraging sign that the EAC is back in the game.

Stay tuned …

However, sometimes accidents are covered for under $? I find$1,000. But remember it is and is frowned upon as much. You can obtain references from transporter. Most car insurance be sure that you get older all things you can thethose parking tickets which would then have to do with insurance, driver’s license photo you apparently should wait until the same opening lines.

  20. The U.S. EAC standards Board is made up of 110 members of local and state level election officials representing the 55 states and territories. The Standards Board assists the EAC in carrying out its mandates under the law.

  21. Election Support Consolidation and Efficiency Act – (Sec. 2) Amends the Help America Vote Act of 2002 to terminate the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), the EAC Standards Board, and the EAC Board of Advisors 61 days after enactment of this Act. Requires the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to perform EAC functions with respect to certain existing contracts and agreements during the transition period for winding up EAC affairs.

    Transfers specified election administration functions of the EAC to the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

  22. What role in the administration of elections will the new U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) play, and how does that role differ from past federal involvement? The answers are uncertain because delays in appointing the commission members and insufficient funding severely handicapped early activities. This article examines the factors that influence the EAC’s emerging role: the commission’s background, structure, tasks and tools, start-up activities, and recent issues. Because the principal impact of the EAC is indirect, affecting election administration through the states, we draw on the “tools of government” literature to frame the discussion. Although the Help America Vote Act of 2002, which created the EAC, continues a long line of federal regulatory mandates in the elections arena, the EAC has almost no regulatory authority. Its principal tools are grants and information-instruments of cooperative, rather than coercive, federalism. Given that the major grant programs are ending, the EAC’s long-term contribution will likely be to create and disseminate information.
