Help America Vote Act (HAVA) The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) is a federal law passed in 2002 that provided funding and requirements for states to modernize and improve the administration of elections, especially in the wake of the controversial 2000 U.S. presidential election. HAVA established minimum standards for voting systems, such as requirements for accessibility, accuracy, and reliability, and created the Election Assistance Commission to provide guidance and assistance to states. What can a person do if he or she becomes aware of a violation of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA)? A person who believes that there is a violation of any provision of Title III of HAVA, including a violation that has occurred, is occurring, or is about to occur, with respect to an election for national office, may file a written, notarized complaint with the Division of Elections.
