>DRE (direct recording electronic) = paperless electronic, graphical user
>interface prevents overvotes, warns of undervotes, etc.
>EBP (electronic ballot printer) = graphical user interface, prints countable
>ballot on plain stock
>EBM (electronic ballot marker) = graphical user interface, prints marks on
>preprinted ballot forms
>Any of these possibly qualified as "touch screen DRE" or "button face EBM"

I thought that this group would like to know that the IEEE P1583
standards committee appears to be adopting these concepts as
distinct, in large part due to my efforts there.
