Does my complaint qualify as a Title III HAVA complaint?

Title IV of the Help America Vote Act requires each state to establish a state-based administrative complaint procedure.  This procedure allows individuals to file a complaint if any person believes that a violation under Title III of the Help America Vote Act has occurred, is occurring or is about to occur.

A violation of Title III would include issues dealing with the following HAVA sections:

  • voting system standards
  • provisional voting
  • voter information requirements
  • statewide voter registration database and
  • accessibility for persons with disabilities

If your complaint does not fall within one of the above categories, you may still file a complaint with your local county election office, the State Coordinator of Elections office or online using a general complaint form.
