Computerized voter lists

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report yesterday on nine states that have implemented computerized voter registration lists as required by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA, PL 107-252, pdf, 212KB, 66p., from GPO). HAVA required that states create these lists by Jan. 1, 2004, but they could apply for a 2-year waiver to Jan. 1, 2006. All but nine states obtained the waiver. This study reviews the experiences of the nine states that implemented the HAVA voter registration provisions, Hawaii being one of them (see Appendix VI).
