In this work we develop the volume averaged form of the frequency-dependent governing equations for electrohydrodynamics in a saturated porous medium. The concept of local electrical equilibrium is identified, and when this condition is valid we obtain a one-equation model describing the coupled transport of momentum and electric charge. When local electrical equilibrium is not valid, separate forms of Maxwell's equations must be developed for both the fluid and solid phases.
