ELECTION ASSISTANCE COMMISSION RELEASES 2014 POST-ELECTION SURVEY FOR PUBLIC COMMENT-Public encouraged to review prior to September 16, 2013
August 7, 2013 - Alexandria, Va. - The United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC) released the draft of its 2014 Election Administration and Voting Survey for public comment. This proposed survey reflects the consolidation of the 2012 Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) local election official survey into the proposed EAC survey. The 2014 EAC survey is intended to meet the requirements of both the EAC and FVAP to collect election-related statistics from local election officials.
This effort completes a process begun when FVAP, the EAC and the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) decided in 2011 to work toward a single survey instrument. In response to requests from State and local officials, EAC, FVAP and NASED reached a mutual agreement to combine post-election survey collection efforts in order to reduce the overall burden placed election officials. It also demonstrates the first direct action by FVAP in response to program recommendations featured in its 2012 Post-Election Report to Congress at http://www.fvap.gov/reference/annualreports.html.
Members of the public are encouraged to review the proposed 2014 survey through September 16, 2013 at the following link:
