EAC Releases Voluntary Voting System Guidelines for Public Comment

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) today released the proposed Voluntary
Voting System Guidelines for public comment, and the document is available on the
EAC website at www.eac.gov.

These proposed Guidelines update and augment the 2002 Voting System Standards, as
required by the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA), to address advancements in
information and computer technologies. They were designed to meet the contemporary
needs of the elections community. EAC proposes that the Guidelines become effective 24
months after final adoption, which is anticipated to take place in October 2005.

EAC will accept comments on the Guidelines for 90 days. Comments may be posted on
the website, submitted via email to votingsystemguidelines@eacgov . or mailed to:
Voting System Guidelines Comments, U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 1225 New
York Avenue, N.W., Suite 1100, Washington, DC 20005. The Guidelines are also
available in hard copy and CD-ROM formats. To request a copy call EAC at 1-866-747-

At the conclusion of the public comment period and after the consideration of comments
received, EAC commissioners will vote to adopt the Voluntary Voting System
