The EAC Standards Board reviewed and provided comment on eight draft chapters of the Election Management Guidelines. The draft chapters contained recommendations and best practices regarding: absentee voting and vote by mail; acceptance testing; ballot building; contingency planning and change management; developing an audit trail; polling place and vote center management; pre-election and parallel testing; and uniformed and overseas voters.
The EAC Standards Board Virtual Meeting Room was established to enable the Standards Board to conduct business in an efficient manner in a public forum, including being able to review and discuss draft documents, when it is not feasible for an in-person board meeting. The Standards Board did not take any votes or propose any resolutions during the 5-day forum of April 21–25, 2008. Members posted comments about the eight draft chapters of the Election Management Guidelines
