The US Election Assistance Commission (EAC) was established by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA). The EAC is an “independent, bipartisan commission charged with developing guidance to meet HAVA requirements, adopting voluntary voting system guidelines, and serving as a national clearinghouse of information about election administration.”

The EAC also conducts research and surveys into Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) voters. Through the EAC website you can download their uniformed and overseas citizen absentee voting act studies as well as select data sets:
