Aug. 16, 2016 — The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) has awarded Fors Marsh Group (FMG), LLC, a contract to conduct the 2016 Election Administration and Voting Survey (EAVS).
FMG will administer, compile data and report on this biennial survey, working with each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the territories of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. Additionally, FMG will prepare the 2016 EAC Election Administration and Voting Survey Comprehensive Report. This report will explore many facets of the electoral process and voting technology. It will include sections on voter registration and recommendations related to the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 and to the voting participation of uniformed services members, their families and overseas citizens.
"FMG is proud to be selected by the EAC to oversee this important survey used by government agencies, academics and civic-oriented organizations to increase voter participation," said Dr. Sean Marsh, FMG’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO). "Drawing on our firm’s experience in voter registration programs, and through the leadership of election experts such as Dr. Thad Hall and Dr. Krysha Gregorowicz, we will administer this survey nationwide and deliver actionable information to the EAC and to the American public."
