HAVA anticipated that States, Territories and the District of Columbia would change or update their plans from time to time pursuant to HAVA section 254(a)(11) through (13). HAVA sections 254(a)(11)(A) and 255 require EAC to publish such updates.

The revised State plans from Florida, New Jersey, Oregon, South Dakota, Nevada, and Alaska address material changes in the respective budgets of the previously submitted State plans. South Dakota and New Jersey submitted certifications under HAVA section 251(b)(2) allowing the State to use requirements payments for activities other than meeting the requirements of Title III. Minnesota and Oregon have provided updates to how the states plan to meet the Title III requirements, including implementation of the HAVA section 301 voting system standards and the HAVA section 303 statewide voter registration list.

In accordance with HAVA section 254(a)(12), all the State plans submitted for publication provide information on how the respective State succeeded in carrying out its previous State plan. The States all confirm that these material changes to their respective State plans were developed and submitted to public comment in accordance with HAVA sections 254(a)(11), 255, and 256.

Upon the expiration of thirty days from April 25, 2008, the States are eligible to implement the material changes addressed in the plans that are published herein, in accordance with HAVA section 254(a)(11)(C).
