New election reform changes went into effect as Congress passed and the President signed the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA). HAVA brought changes to the way citizens register to vote, cast their ballots, and make their voices heard about the voting process.
Changes influenced by HAVA include:
- New voting equipment
- Provisional voting rights
- New voter registration rules
- Help for military and overseas voters
- Improved methods for voicing concerns
