On March 24, 2004, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission 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. 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. This is Connecticut's first revision, Montana's second revision, Oklahoma's second revision, and South Dakota's third revision to its State plan.

The revised State plans from Connecticut, Montana, Oklahoma, and South Dakota address changes in the respective budgets of the previously submitted State plans. 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 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 September 9, 2008, the States are eligible to implement the changes addressed in the plans that are published herein, in accordance with HAVA section 254(a)(11)(C).
