Standards Board (Virtual Public Forum)

09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

EAC Standards Board Virtual Meeting Room at www.eac.gov. Once at the main page of EAC’s website, viewers should click the link to the Standards Board Virtual Meeting Room. The virtual meeting room will open on Thursday, May 17, 2007, at 7:00 A.M. EDT and will close on Tuesday, May 22, at 7:00 A.M. EDT. The site will be available 24 hours per day during that 5-day period.

The EAC Standards Board will review and provide comment on a draft EAC report that was developed by Design for Democracy. The draft report contains best practices suggestions on the design of voter information, optical scan ballots and direct recording electronic (DRE) ballots based on legislative guidelines, information design principles and user centered research.

The EAC Standards Board Virtual Meeting Room was established to enable the Standards Board to review and discuss draft documents in a public forum when it is not feasible for an in-person board meeting. The May 17-22, 2007 forum is the first use of this virtual meeting room and as such is a test of the concept. The Standards Board will not take any votes or propose any resolutions during this 5-day forum. Members will post comments about the draft best practices suggestions for the design of voter information and ballots.
