Agency Seal

AGENCY: U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The EAC is implementing a new official agency seal for use on 
all agency internal and external correspondence, communications, media, 
materials, and methods of identification.

DATES: The new agency seal is effective on March 15, 2021.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kristen Muthig, Telephone: (202) 897-
9285, Email: [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2021, the U.S. Election Assistance 
Commission (EAC) underwent the process to rebrand and develop a new 
seal for the agency to better reflect the mission and work of the EAC. 
Since the agency was established by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 
(HAVA), the EAC used a variation of the Great Seal of the United States 
for its logo.
    As the new seal was developed, the following considerations were 
made and elements incorporated:
     The seal reflects the EAC's testing and certification of 
voting machines by showing a circuit board.
     The circuit board diodes incorporate the word ``VOTE'' in 
Braille reflecting the importance of accessibility for voters with 
disabilities and EAC's role in ensuring all Americans can vote 
privately and independently.
     The flag reflects democracy, the EAC as a federal agency, 
and voters' rights.
     The three stars in the flag represent the three main 
functions of the EAC: Clearinghouse, Testing and Certification, 
Research.
     The ballot box reflects the various options of voting and 
the EAC's mission to assist with election administration best 
practices.
    Permission is required for the replication or use of this seal. The 
seal is effective on March 15, 2021. The EAC believes that delaying the 
effective date is unnecessary as this is a notice regarding agency 
organization, procedure, and practice and there are no changes to 
public access to the agency or agency services provided to the public. 
Additionally, the public will benefit immediately from recognition of 
the new official logo of the EAC on official documents and materials.
