- Citizens Redistricting Commission - Read below about implementation of the Voters First Act (Proposition 11 passed in November 2008) which handed the job of drawing California's legislative district borders to a Citizens Redistricting Commission. Two years later, the passage of Proposition 20, the Voters First Act for Congress, added drawing California's Congressional districts to the Commission's tasks. The Citizens Redistricting Commission (CRC) completed four statewide maps (of Assembly, Senate, Board of Equalization, and Congressional districts) and certified them to the California Secretary of State on August 15, 2011. The maps were approved (precleared) by the US Department of Justice on January 17, 2012, in other words the US DOJ ruled that the maps do not dilute minority voting power in four counties (Kings, Merced, Monterey and Yuba) under federal oversight. Despite various challenges, these maps will be used for California's 2012 Elections: the Primary Election on June 5, 2012 and General Election on November 6, 2012.
Commission Formation Process: The Bureau of State Audits was responsible for creating California's first Citizens Redistricting Commission. For a full description of the year-long application and selection process click here. Information about the 14 member group can be found here.
Commission Deliberations: The Commission began meeting on January 12, 2011 and on August 15, 2011 they approved the four statewide maps and certified them the California Secretary of State. A list of all the meetings and video or audio of those meetings are available here; the transcripts of business meetings are available here. Throughout April, May and June of 2011, the CRC held public input hearings around the state, at which any member of the public could speak for 2-3 minutes to the Commission about their views on where the lines should be drawn. Individuals could also submit written comments by postal mail, fax, website comment page, or email at any time starting in early 2011. Over 2,700 members of the public spoke at 34 Commission hearings around the state and close to 20,000 comments were received in writing.

- Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota (CEIMN)
From CEIMN in 2010: 'Citizens for Election Integrity Minnesota and Common Cause Minnesota... released a report that refutes erroneous claims about the 2008 US Senate recount and Minnesota’s election law and practice, made by the Center of the American Experiment (CAE) - "No Longer a National Model." Read our report here. CAE proposes significant changes in Minnesota‘s election systems. However, the CAE report provides no documentation to back up its claims and, upon close scrutiny, its claims are found to be highly inaccurate and misleading. For example, they state that the rejection rate for military absentee voters was 16 times greater than regular absentee voters, when in fact it was double. In our response we argue that the orderly resolution of the 2008 Senate recount stands in sharp relief to the more chaotic results of contests in Florida (2000) and Ohio (2004). We also state that the preponderance of evidence supports our conclusion that Minnesota's elections are indeed a national model.'

UOCAVA Voters and the Electronic Transmission of Voting Materials in Four States
Section 245 of HAVA requires EAC to conduct a study of issues and challenges, specifically including the potential for election fraud, that are presented by the incorporation of communications and internet technologies in the Federal, state and local electoral process.
To begin to better understand the issues, challenges and potential for electronic voting, EAC undertook a series of case studies regarding four states’ experiences with developing programs for transmitting absentee ballots to UOCAVA voters. These case studies describe the unique experiences of state’s experiences with transmitting ballots electronically, sending and accepting ballots electronically, and using internet voting.
Voting from Abroad: A Survey of UOCAVA Voters
The research study also surveyed UOCAVA voters regarding their reactions to, attitudes toward, and experiences with electronic voting.
Facilitating UOCAVA Voting Conference
The final portion of the study involved conducting a national conference in September 2007 with state officials and interested parties. The conference served as a forum for the exchange of information regarding experiences with the electronic transmission of absentee ballots to UOCAVA voters.
