The EAC Standards Board will review and provide comment on a draft version of the EAC Research Department's Recounts and Contests study. The draft version contains information about the laws and procedures each States uses to govern recounts, contests, and standards for what constitutes a valid vote. The study includes best practices that States use with respect to recounts and contests. The EAC Standards Board Virtual Meeting Room was established to enable the Standards Board to conduct business in an efficient manner in a public forum, including being able to review and discuss draft documents, when it is not feasible for an in-person board meeting. The Standards Board will not take any votes or propose any resolutions during the 12-day forum of May 3-May 14, 2010. Members will post comments about the draft version of the Recounts and Contests study.

This activity is open to the public. The public may view the proceedings of this special forum by visiting the EAC standards board virtual meeting room at at any time between Monday, May 3, 2010, 9 a.m. EDT and Friday, May 14, 2010, 9 p.m. EDT.
