USEAC news & question on #precincts/polling location

I attended the Summer National Association of State Election Directors'
conference.

GOOD NEWS:
Brian Hancock, on the voting systems Board of the USEAC, had some good
news. He said that Full Test Code Reports w/ Only Source code &
Schematics redacted would be made publicly available through the new EAC
voting machine certification process. Testing & Certification Docs will
be available.
----------------

QUESTION:
I mentioned that research shows that the more precincts/polling
location, the higher the under-vote rate so that Voting Centers might
cause increased voter disenfranchisement.

Georgia's Election Director said "Show me the research on that!"

Does you have URLs of studies of undervote rates versus the number of
precincts per polling location?

Thank you.

p.s. We need election activists and someone from OVC to attend the
NASED.org conferences. I will put out a report soon on the summer NASED
conference since I was almost the only election activist there and there
did not seem to be any reporters.
