HAVA section 253(b)(2) requires States, as a condition of receiving requirements payments in accordance with HAVA sections 251 and 252, to have filed with EAC a plan for the implementation of the uniform, nondiscriminatory administrative complaint procedures required under HAVA section 402 (or to have included such a plan in the State plan filed under HAVA section 254), and to have such procedures in place. If the State did not include such an implementation plan in its State plan, HAVA section 253(b)(2) requires that the requirements of HAVA sections 255(b) and 256 apply to the complaint procedures implementation plan. HAVA section 256 requires the State to make a preliminary version of the plan available for public inspection and comment for thirty days, to publish notice that the plan is so available, and to take public comments into account in preparing the complaint procedures implementation plan filed with EAC. HAVA section 255(b) requires EAC to publish the plan in the Federal Register, after the required State public comment period.
On March 24, 2004, the EAC published in the Federal Register the original HAVA State plans filed by the fifty States, the District of Columbia and the Territories of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 69 FR 14002. Twenty-one States included their administrative complaint procedures in their original HAVA State plans. On September 30, 2004, EAC published in the Federal Register amendments to the State plans submitted by Nevada and South Carolina that also included the States' administrative complaint procedures. 69 FR 58630. On March 11, 2005, EAC published in the Federal Register amendments to Oklahoma's State plan that also included the State's administrative complaint procedures. 70 FR 12356. Another thirty-one States have submitted plans to implement the administrative complaint procedures separately from any State plans filed with EAC. These implementation plans are published herein, in accordance with HAVA sections 253(b)(2) and 255(b).
EAC notes that the plans to implement State administrative complaint procedures that are published herein include only those that have already met the notice and comment requirements of HAVA section 256, as required by HAVA section 253(b)(2). EAC wishes to acknowledge the effort that went into the developing these implementation plans and encourages further public comment, in writing, to the State election official of the individual States listed below.
Thank you for your interest in improving the voting process in America.
