More than Just Waivers: State Compliance with the MOVE Act
https://www.overseasvotefoundation.org/MOVE_Act_waivers Based on the responses received and our contact with election officials at all levels including the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP), we think current condemnation of the states' implementation fails to grasp the bigger picture of legislative movement that is currently taking place.
