Subject: Glossary of Election Terms now available in five Asian languages

To whom it may concern,
Just wanted to let you know that the Election Assistance Commission just issued glossaries of election terms in five Asian languages. Perhaps you would consider providing a link to these glossaries on your Web site. The information is available here: http://www.eac.gov/voter/language-accessibility-program-1

Thank you for your consideration.
