The Bipartisan Policy Center submitted the following comments on EAC’s Proposed “Voluntary Voting System Guidelines 2.0 Principles and Guidelines.”
Dear Chairwoman McCormick:
The Bipartisan Policy Center is a nonprofit organization that combines the best ideas from both parties to promote health, security, and opportunity for all Americans. BPC drives principled and politically viable policy solutions through the power of rigorous analysis, painstaking negotiation, and aggressive advocacy. Our policy solutions are the product of informed deliberations by current and former elected and appointed officials, business and labor leaders, and academics and advocates who represent views from across the political spectrum.
BPC is pleased to submit comments on the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s proposed Voluntary Voting System Guidelines 2.0 Principles and Guidelines. BPC’s Elections Project builds on the success of our efforts to enhance the voting experience by implementing the recommendations of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration. The Elections Project has convened three task forces in 2019 to analyze voting in America, develop bipartisan recommendations that improve the voting experience, and engage in the 2020 election
conversation with respect to registering to vote, casting a ballot, and counting the vote. The Elections Project maintains relationships with local and state election administrators and policymakers and administers the largest data collection of line lengths at individual polling places throughout the country.
