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 the second revision to New Jersey's State plan and the first revision to Wisconsin's State plan.
The revised State plan from New Jersey provides information on program accomplishments and changes in the respective budgets to account for the use of Fiscal Year 2008 and 2009 requirements payments in addition to any future HAVA funding. The revised State plan from Wisconsin provides a total revision to its previous State plan including information on program accomplishments and changes in the respective budgets to account for the use of Fiscal Year 2008 and 2009 requirements payments. 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. New Jersey and Wisconsin confirm that these revisions to their respective State plans were developed and submitted to public comment in accordance with HAVA sections 254(a)(11), 255, and 256.
