President Obama tries again Wednesday to meet with his Commission on Election Administration.

Rescheduling an event postponed Tuesday because of snow, Obama and Vice President Biden will receive a report from the commission on efforts to make voting more convenient.

"The commission was created following the president's 2013 State of the Union pledge to identify non-partisan ways to shorten lines at polling places, promote the efficient conduct of elections, and provide better access to the polls for all voters," says the White House schedule.

Obama also meets Wednesday with Cabinet secretaries who are members of the Council on Women and Girls. The president and first lady Michelle Obama will also host an event on the council's work.

On the agenda: A new initiative to combat sexual assault, particularly on college campuses. Obama plans to announce a new task force devoted to the issue, and discuss a new report saying that one in five woman have been sexually assaulted at college, and the crimes are too rarely reported.

Obama also meets today with Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.
