Help America Vote Act of 2002
An act passed in response to the presidential election of 2000, which remained undecided for several weeks due to voting problems such as computer problems, misplaced vote boxes, and confusing ballot designs. This law made federal funding available to states to update their voting procedures and equipment, created the Election Assistance Commission to provide information on federal elections, and specified uniform technology and administration standards for federal elections.
