VVSG 1.1 90 Day Public Comment Period

from: Jessica Myers on Sep 13, 2012


Voluntary Voting System Guidelines 1.1
EAC is holding a 90-day public comment period for the Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG) version 1.1. The purpose of the comment period is to provide an opportunity for the public to offer additional input on proposed requirements for Version 1.1.
Volume 1 and 2 are available on the EAC’s website. The comment period begins September 6, 2012. Comments must be received on or before 4 p.m. EST on December 5, 2012.
The initial proposed revision to VVSG 1.1, was offered during a 120-day public comment period in the summer of 2009. Since that time, the EAC’s Testing & Certification Program has discovered additional best practices, experienced anomalies and deficiencies with voting systems entering the Testing and Certification Program, and clarified many ambiguities with the standard. Changes were made after the 120-day public comment period to address these issues. 
For more information about changes made to VVSG 1.1 or the comment period, please view the Federal Register notice. For questions about how to submit comments, please contact Jessica Myers by email at jmyers@eac.gov.
