ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the EAC announces an information collection and seeks public comment on the provisions thereof. The EAC intends to submit this proposed information collection (2018 Election Administration and Voting Survey) to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget for approval. The 2018 Election Administration and Voting Survey (Survey) asks election officials questions concerning voting and election administration. These questions request information concerning ballots cast; voter registration; overseas and military voting; Election Day activities; voting technology; and other important issues. The EAC issues the survey to meet its obligations under the Help America Vote Act to serve as national clearinghouse and resource for the compilation of information with respect to the administration of Federal elections; to fulfill both the EAC’s and the Department of Defense Federal Voting Assistance Programs’ (FVAP) quantitative State data collection requirements under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA); and meet its National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) mandate to collect information from states concerning the impact of that statute on the administration of Federal Elections. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before 5:00 p.m. EST on November 6, 2017. ADDRESSES: Comments on the proposed information collection should be submitted electronically to electiondaysurvey@eac.gov. Written comments on the proposed information collection can also be sent to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 1335 East West Highway, Suite 4300, Silver Spring, MD 20910, Attn: Election Administration and Voting Survey. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Obtaining a Copy of the Survey: To obtain a free copy of the survey: (1) Email Sean Greene at the U.S. Election Assistance Commission at sgreene@ eac.gov; or (2) write to the EAC (including your address and phone number) at U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 1335 East West Highway, Suite 4300, Silver Spring, MD 20910, Attn: Election Administration and Voting Survey.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments: Public comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Needs and Uses The EAC issues the survey to meet its obligations under the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) to serve as national clearinghouse and resource for the compilation of information with respect to the administration of Federal elections; to fulfill both the EAC and FVAP’s data collection requirements under the UOCAVA; and meet its NVRA mandate to collect information from states concerning the impact of that statute on the administration of Federal Elections. HAVA requires the EAC to serve as a national clearinghouse and resource for the compilation of information and review of procedures with respect to the administration of Federal Elections. This includes the obligation to study and report on election activities, practices, policies, and procedures, such as methods of voter registration, methods of conducting provisional voting, poll worker recruitment and training, and such other matters as the Commission determines are appropriate. In addition, under the NVRA, the EAC is responsible for collecting information and reporting, biennially, to the United States Congress on the impact of that statute. The information the States are required to submit to the EAC for purposes of the E:\FR\FM\06SEN1.SGM 06SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 171 / Wednesday, September 6, 2017 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES NVRA report are found under Title 11 of the Code of Federal Regulations. States that respond to questions in this survey concerning voter registration related matters will meet their NVRA reporting requirements under 52 U.S.C. 20508 and EAC regulations. Finally, the UOCAVA mandates that the FVAP work with the EAC and State Chief Election officials to develop standards for reporting UOCAVA voting information (52 U.S.C. 20302) and that the FVAP will store the reported data and present the findings within the congressionallymandated report to the President and Congress. Additionally, UOCAVA requires that ‘‘not later than 90 days after the date of each regularly scheduled general election for Federal office, each State and unit of local government which administered the election shall (through the State, in the case of a unit of local government) submit a report to the EAC on the combined number of absentee ballots transmitted to absent uniformed services voters and overseas voters for the election and the combined number of such ballots which were returned by such voters and cast in the election, and shall make such a report available to the general public.’’ States that complete and timely submit the UOCAVA section of the survey to the EAC will fulfill their UOCAVA reporting requirement under 52 U.S.C. 20302. In order to fulfill the above requirements, the EAC is seeking information relating to the period from the Federal general election day 2016 +1 through the November 2018 Federal general election. The EAC will provide the data regarding UOCAVA voting to FVAP after data collection is completed. This data sharing reduces burden on local election offices because FVAP does not have to conduct its own data collection to meet its reporting requirements.

ELECTION ASSISTANCE COMMISSION


Proposed Information Collection--2018 Election Administration and 
Voting Survey; Comment Request

AGENCY: U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the 
EAC announces an information collection and seeks public comment on the 
provisions thereof. The EAC intends to submit this proposed information 
collection (2018 Election Administration and Voting Survey) to the 
Director of the Office of Management and Budget for approval. The 2018 
Election Administration and Voting Survey (Survey) asks election 
officials questions concerning voting and election administration. 
These questions request information concerning ballots cast; voter 
registration; overseas and military voting; Election Day activities; 
voting technology; and other important issues. The EAC issues the 
survey to meet its obligations under the Help America Vote Act to serve 
as national clearinghouse and resource for the compilation of 
information with respect to the administration of Federal elections; to 
fulfill both the EAC's and the Department of Defense Federal Voting 
Assistance Programs' (FVAP) quantitative State data collection 
requirements under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting 
Act (UOCAVA); and meet its National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) 
mandate to collect information from states concerning the impact of 
that statute on the administration of Federal Elections.

DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before 5:00 p.m. EST on 
November 6, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Comments on the proposed information collection should be 
submitted electronically to electiondaysurvey@eac.gov. Written comments 
on the proposed information collection can also be sent to the U.S. 
Election Assistance Commission, 1335 East West Highway, Suite 4300, 
Silver Spring, MD 20910, Attn: Election Administration and Voting 
Survey.
    Obtaining a Copy of the Survey: To obtain a free copy of the 
survey: (1) Email Sean Greene at the U.S. Election Assistance 
Commission at sgreene@eac.gov; or (2) write to the EAC (including your 
address and phone number) at U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 1335 
East West Highway, Suite 4300, Silver Spring, MD 20910, Attn: Election 
Administration and Voting Survey.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Sean Greene at 301-563-3919, or 
email sgreene@eac.gov, U.S. Election Assistance Commission 1335 East 
West Highway, Suite 4300, Silver Spring, MD 20910.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Comments: Public comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance 
the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; 
and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology.

Needs and Uses

    The EAC issues the survey to meet its obligations under the Help 
America Vote Act (HAVA) to serve as national clearinghouse and resource 
for the compilation of information with respect to the administration 
of Federal elections; to fulfill both the EAC and FVAP's data 
collection requirements under the UOCAVA; and meet its NVRA mandate to 
collect information from states concerning the impact of that statute 
on the administration of Federal Elections. HAVA requires the EAC to 
serve as a national clearinghouse and resource for the compilation of 
information and review of procedures with respect to the administration 
of Federal Elections. This includes the obligation to study and report 
on election activities, practices, policies, and procedures, such as 
methods of voter registration, methods of conducting provisional 
voting, poll worker recruitment and training, and such other matters as 
the Commission determines are appropriate. In addition, under the NVRA, 
the EAC is responsible for collecting information and reporting, 
biennially, to the United States Congress on the impact of that 
statute. The information the States are required to submit to the EAC 
for purposes of the

[[Page 42085]]

NVRA report are found under Title 11 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations. States that respond to questions in this survey concerning 
voter registration related matters will meet their NVRA reporting 
requirements under 52 U.S.C. 20508 and EAC regulations. Finally, the 
UOCAVA mandates that the FVAP work with the EAC and State Chief 
Election officials to develop standards for reporting UOCAVA voting 
information (52 U.S.C. 20302) and that the FVAP will store the reported 
data and present the findings within the congressionally-mandated 
report to the President and Congress. Additionally, UOCAVA requires 
that ``not later than 90 days after the date of each regularly 
scheduled general election for Federal office, each State and unit of 
local government which administered the election shall (through the 
State, in the case of a unit of local government) submit a report to 
the EAC on the combined number of absentee ballots transmitted to 
absent uniformed services voters and overseas voters for the election 
and the combined number of such ballots which were returned by such 
voters and cast in the election, and shall make such a report available 
to the general public.'' States that complete and timely submit the 
UOCAVA section of the survey to the EAC will fulfill their UOCAVA 
reporting requirement under 52 U.S.C. 20302. In order to fulfill the 
above requirements, the EAC is seeking information relating to the 
period from the Federal general election day 2016 +1 through the 
November 2018 Federal general election. The EAC will provide the data 
regarding UOCAVA voting to FVAP after data collection is completed. 
This data sharing reduces burden on local election offices because FVAP 
does not have to conduct its own data collection to meet its reporting 
requirements.
