substantively build upon existing mock election programs.

The purpose of the program is to allow students to become more familiar with voting processes and technologies so that when they become eligible to vote they will be more comfortable with their civic duties.

EAC is particularly interested in funding opportunities that promote the use of voting machines through partnerships with local election officials.



Project funds must be used for tasks and activities that are carried out without partisan bias and without promoting any particular political point of view regarding any election issue or candidate.
