The HAVA Act of 2002, Standards for States Voting

Sharing is Caring!

The HAVA Act signed into law by George W Bush set up mandatory minimum standards for all states in the USA.

Provisional Voting

Voting Information

Updated and Upgraded Voting Equipment

Statewide Voter Registration Databases

****Voter Identification Procedures****

Administrative Complaint Procedures

HAVA creates new mandatory minimum standards for states to follow in several key areas of election administration. The law provides funding to help states meet these new standards, replace voting systems and improve election administration. HAVA also established the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to assist the states regarding HAVA compliance and to distribute HAVA funds to the states. EAC is also charged with creating voting system guidelines and operating the federal government’s first voting system certification program. EAC is also responsible for maintaining the National Voter Registration form, conducting research, and administering a national clearinghouse on elections that includes shared practices, information for voters and other resources to improve elections. HAVA requires that the states implement the following new programs and procedures: List Above.

This looks to me like they are legal set standards for all US States.

On October 29, 2002, President Bush signed the “Help America Vote Act of 2002,” (HAVA), Pub. L. No. 107-252, 116 Stat. 1666 (2002) into law. The HAVA is codified at 42 U.S.C. 15301 to 15545.

creating a new federal agency to serve as a clearinghouse for election administration information;
providing funds to states to improve election administration and replace outdated voting systems; and
creating minimum standards for states to follow in several key areas of election administration.

The states working against this law are breaking USA laws.


There are also Federal laws that govern state elections.

What Are Federal Election Crimes?
Federal election crimes fall into three broad categories:

Campaign finance crimes, such as when candidates accept funds that violate the amounts or donors permitted under the law
Civil rights violations, involving voter intimidation, coercion, threats, and other tactics to suppress a person’s ability to vote
Voter fraud and voter registration fraud, such as when someone illegally casts a vote in the name of a dead person or someone who’s moved
Many states have strengthened their voter ID requirements to try to stop voter fraud.

Know your rights and the laws America.

Don’t let the democrats cheat.
