Voting Public Working Groups

Table of ContentsUseful Links


---+ General Information

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) are utilizing a series of public working groups to inform the development of a new version of the EAC Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG).

NIST and EAC goals are to accelerate the development and adoption of the VVSG by leading these working groups in close consultation with election officials, the federal and private sectors, standards bodies and EAC committees, academic researchers, and other members of the public. The nearer-term aim is to shorten the time needed for development and adoption of a new version of the VVSG by having all interested parties at the table at the same time. The longer-term aim is to make the process by which subsequent new VVSG versions are created and revised more nimble in responding to new technological developments in voting and in associated areas such as accessibility, security, and usability.

The NIST and the EAC areas of focus for the working groups are in voting system technology, including accessibility, usability, interoperability, security, and testing. These focus areas will inform the development of VVSG requirements and the processes for VVSG revision.

Public Working Group Guidance

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Voting Program focuses on the development of community-based guidelines, metrics, and guidelines that inform the development of the Election Assistance Commission's (EAC) Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG). This effort is undertaken in partnership with interested Federal, commercial, and private sector parties through the formation of public working groups. The key provisions for forming and managing these working groups are summarized below:

Formation and Scope: Public working groups are established by the NIST Voting Program to pursue its goals for informing the development of a new version of the VVSG through a combined public-private effort. Input from government, commercial, and academic sector individuals and entities is considered by the Program in evaluating the formation or dissolution of a public working group, including its initial and continuing scope and tasking.

Constituency vs. Election Cycle Groups: Constituency groups are for development of guidance or deliverables that may inform the election cycle groups. In addition constituency group members will meet to discuss the activities of each election cycle group to help ensure each constituency group's interests are covered throughout the process. The election cycle groups will take input from the constituency groups so as to develop or inform requirements development for consideration by the EAC's Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC).

Membership: Participation in a public working group is open and free to all interested parties; there are no membership fees.

Leadership: Public working groups are led by NIST and EAC staff acting as Chairs and/or Vice-Chairs along with designated members.

Liaisons: To promote coordination among the working groups, individual Groups may designate liaisons to one or more other groups as needed.

Sub-groups: Each public working group may create one or more sub-groups to focus on a specific task and an associated deliverable. Any deliverables or recommendations of the sub-group are advisory only to the parent working group. Sub-groups are dissolved at the completion of their tasking or at any time upon the direction of the parent working group.

Sub-group Leadership: The heads of sub-groups - "Leaders" and/or "Co-Leaders" - are designated by the Chair or Vice-Chair of the parent working group from among the working group membership based on knowledge and interest in the sub-group tasking.

Meeting Frequency: Each working group will establish its own schedule for meetings and teleconferences.

Products: The products of working groups prepared at the direction of NIST and EAC staff and/or its designated representatives are subject to NIST and EAC review and are intended for public release at NIST's discretion.

Standing Rules

Line: 18 to 18
 
  • NIST reserves the right to block individuals from participating in the working group if they do not abide by the working groups' basic rules of etiquette. While, in general, up to two warnings can be issued prior to anyone being blocked from participation, it is up to the sole discretion of the moderator and working group chair.
  • Participants blocked from the calls and the mailing list may still provide input to NIST on voting standards by sending written comments to working group chair.

Etiquette

  • Be respectful of other working group members. Ensure your comments are on topic, relevant, and accurate. Do not berate others for their views or prevent others from participating by repeatedly providing the same input. Refrain from profane, sexually explicit, threatening, or otherwise offensive language.

Public Working Group Guidance

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Voting Program focuses on the development of community-based guidelines, metrics, and guidelines that inform the development of the Election Assistance Commission's (EAC) Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG). This effort is undertaken in partnership with interested Federal, commercial, and private sector parties through the formation of public working groups. The key provisions for forming and managing these working groups are summarized below:

Formation and Scope: Public working groups are established by the NIST Voting Program to pursue its goals for informing the development of a new version of the VVSG through a combined public-private effort. Input from government, commercial, and academic sector individuals and entities is considered by the Program in evaluating the formation or dissolution of a public working group, including its initial and continuing scope and tasking.

Constituency vs. Election Cycle Groups: Constituency groups are for development of guidance or deliverables that may inform the election cycle groups. In addition constituency group members will meet to discuss the activities of each election cycle group to help ensure each constituency group's interests are covered throughout the process. The election cycle groups will take input from the constituency groups so as to develop or inform requirements development for consideration by the EAC's Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC).

Membership: Participation in a public working group is open and free to all interested parties; there are no membership fees.

Leadership: Public working groups are led by NIST and EAC staff acting as Chairs and/or Vice-Chairs along with designated members.

Liaisons: To promote coordination among the working groups, individual Groups may designate liaisons to one or more other groups as needed.

Sub-groups: Each public working group may create one or more sub-groups to focus on a specific task and an associated deliverable. Any deliverables or recommendations of the sub-group are advisory only to the parent working group. Sub-groups are dissolved at the completion of their tasking or at any time upon the direction of the parent working group.

Sub-group Leadership: The heads of sub-groups - "Leaders" and/or "Co-Leaders" - are designated by the Chair or Vice-Chair of the parent working group from among the working group membership based on knowledge and interest in the sub-group tasking.

Meeting Frequency: Each working group will establish its own schedule for meetings and teleconferences.

Products: The products of working groups prepared at the direction of NIST and EAC staff and/or its designated representatives are subject to NIST and EAC review and are intended for public release at NIST's discretion.

Voting Public Working Groups

Table of ContentsUseful Links

General Information

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) are utilizing a series of public working groups to inform the development of a new version of the EAC Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG).

NIST and EAC goals are to accelerate the development and adoption of the VVSG by leading these working groups in close consultation with election officials, the federal and private sectors, standards bodies and EAC committees, academic researchers, and other members of the public. The nearer-term aim is to shorten the time needed for development and adoption of a new version of the VVSG by having all interested parties at the table at the same time. The longer-term aim is to make the process by which subsequent new VVSG versions are created and revised more nimble in responding to new technological developments in voting and in associated areas such as accessibility, security, and usability.

The NIST and the EAC areas of focus for the working groups are in voting system technology, including accessibility, usability, interoperability, security, and testing. These focus areas will inform the development of VVSG requirements and the processes for VVSG revision.

NIST Voting Public Working Groups

Announcements and Information

Election Cycle Groups : for development of VVSG requirements

Constituency Groups : for informing the election cycle groups

Public Working Group Guidance

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Voting Program focuses on the development of community-based guidelines, metrics, and guidelines that inform the development of the Election Assistance Commission's (EAC) Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG). This effort is undertaken in partnership with interested Federal, commercial, and private sector parties through the formation of public working groups. The key provisions for forming and managing these working groups are summarized below:

Formation and Scope: Public working groups are established by the NIST Voting Program to pursue its goals for informing the development of a new version of the VVSG through a combined public-private effort. Input from government, commercial, and academic sector individuals and entities is considered by the Program in evaluating the formation or dissolution of a public working group, including its initial and continuing scope and tasking.

Constituency vs. Election Cycle Groups: Constituency groups are for development of guidance or deliverables that may inform the election cycle groups. In addition constituency group members will meet to discuss the activities of each election cycle group to help ensure each constituency group's interests are covered throughout the process. The election cycle groups will take input from the constituency groups so as to develop or inform requirements development for consideration by the EAC's Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC).

Membership: Participation in a public working group is open and free to all interested parties; there are no membership fees.

Leadership: Public working groups are led by NIST and EAC staff acting as Chairs and/or Vice-Chairs along with designated members.

Liaisons: To promote coordination among the working groups, individual Groups may designate liaisons to one or more other groups as needed.

Sub-groups: Each public working group may create one or more sub-groups to focus on a specific task and an associated deliverable. Any deliverables or recommendations of the sub-group are advisory only to the parent working group. Sub-groups are dissolved at the completion of their tasking or at any time upon the direction of the parent working group.

Sub-group Leadership: The heads of sub-groups - "Leaders" and/or "Co-Leaders" - are designated by the Chair or Vice-Chair of the parent working group from among the working group membership based on knowledge and interest in the sub-group tasking.

Meeting Frequency: Each working group will establish its own schedule for meetings and teleconferences.

Products: The products of working groups prepared at the direction of NIST and EAC staff and/or its designated representatives are subject to NIST and EAC review and are intended for public release at NIST's discretion.

  • Only send a message to the entire list when it contains information that everyone can benefit from.
  • Send messages such as "thanks for the information" or "me, too" to individuals—not to the entire list. Do this by using your e-mail application's forwarding option and typing in or cutting and pasting in the e-mail address of the individual to whom you want to respond.

Public Working Group Guidance

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Voting Program focuses on the development of community-based guidelines, metrics, and guidelines that inform the development of the Election Assistance Commission's (EAC) Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG). This effort is undertaken in partnership with interested Federal, commercial, and private sector parties through the formation of public working groups. The key provisions for forming and managing these working groups are summarized below:

Formation and Scope: Public working groups are established by the NIST Voting Program to pursue its goals for informing the development of a new version of the VVSG through a combined public-private effort. Input from government, commercial, and academic sector individuals and entities is considered by the Program in evaluating the formation or dissolution of a public working group, including its initial and continuing scope and tasking.

Constituency vs. Election Cycle Groups: Constituency groups are for development of guidance or deliverables that may inform the election cycle groups. In addition constituency group members will meet to discuss the activities of each election cycle group to help ensure each constituency group's interests are covered throughout the process. The election cycle groups will take input from the constituency groups so as to develop or inform requirements development for consideration by the EAC's Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC).

Membership: Participation in a public working group is open and free to all interested parties; there are no membership fees.

Leadership: Public working groups are led by NIST and EAC staff acting as Chairs and/or Vice-Chairs along with designated members.

Liaisons: To promote coordination among the working groups, individual Groups may designate liaisons to one or more other groups as needed.

Sub-groups: Each public working group may create one or more sub-groups to focus on a specific task and an associated deliverable. Any deliverables or recommendations of the sub-group are advisory only to the parent working group. Sub-groups are dissolved at the completion of their tasking or at any time upon the direction of the parent working group.

Sub-group Leadership: The heads of sub-groups - "Leaders" and/or "Co-Leaders" - are designated by the Chair or Vice-Chair of the parent working group from among the working group membership based on knowledge and interest in the sub-group tasking.

Meeting Frequency: Each working group will establish its own schedule for meetings and teleconferences.

Products: The products of working groups prepared at the direction of NIST and EAC staff and/or its designated representatives are subject to NIST and EAC review and are intended for public release at NIST's discretion.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) are utilizing a series of public working groups to inform the development of a new version of the EAC Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG).

NIST and EAC goals are to accelerate the development and adoption of the VVSG by leading these working groups in close consultation with election officials, the federal and private sectors, standards bodies and EAC committees, academic researchers, and other members of the public. The nearer-term aim is to shorten the time needed for development and adoption of a new version of the VVSG by having all interested parties at the table at the same time. The longer-term aim is to make the process by which subsequent new VVSG versions are created and revised more nimble in responding to new technological developments in voting and in associated areas such as accessibility, security, and usability.

The NIST and the EAC areas of focus for the working groups are in voting system technology, including accessibility, usability, interoperability, security, and testing. These focus areas will inform the development of VVSG requirements and the processes for VVSG revision.

Public Working Group Guidance

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Voting Program focuses on the development of community-based guidelines, metrics, and guidelines that inform the development of the Election Assistance Commission's (EAC) Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG). This effort is undertaken in partnership with interested Federal, commercial, and private sector parties through the formation of public working groups. The key provisions for forming and managing these working groups are summarized below:

Formation and Scope: Public working groups are established by the NIST Voting Program to pursue its goals for informing the development of a new version of the VVSG through a combined public-private effort. Input from government, commercial, and academic sector individuals and entities is considered by the Program in evaluating the formation or dissolution of a public working group, including its initial and continuing scope and tasking.

Constituency vs. Election Cycle Groups: Constituency groups are for development of guidance or deliverables that may inform the election cycle groups. In addition constituency group members will meet to discuss the activities of each election cycle group to help ensure each constituency group's interests are covered throughout the process. The election cycle groups will take input from the constituency groups so as to develop or inform requirements development for consideration by the EAC's Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC).

Membership: Participation in a public working group is open and free to all interested parties; there are no membership fees.

Leadership: Public working groups are led by NIST and EAC staff acting as Chairs and/or Vice-Chairs along with designated members.

Liaisons: To promote coordination among the working groups, individual Groups may designate liaisons to one or more other groups as needed.

Sub-groups: Each public working group may create one or more sub-groups to focus on a specific task and an associated deliverable. Any deliverables or recommendations of the sub-group are advisory only to the parent working group. Sub-groups are dissolved at the completion of their tasking or at any time upon the direction of the parent working group.

Sub-group Leadership: The heads of sub-groups - "Leaders" and/or "Co-Leaders" - are designated by the Chair or Vice-Chair of the parent working group from among the working group membership based on knowledge and interest in the sub-group tasking.

Meeting Frequency: Each working group will establish its own schedule for meetings and teleconferences.

Products: The products of working groups prepared at the direction of NIST and EAC staff and/or its designated representatives are subject to NIST and EAC review and are intended for public release at NIST's discretion.

General Information

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) are utilizing a series of public working groups to inform the development of a new version of the EAC Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG).

NIST and EAC goals are to accelerate the development and adoption of the VVSG by leading these working groups in close consultation with election officials, the federal and private sectors, standards bodies and EAC committees, academic researchers, and other members of the public. The nearer-term aim is to shorten the time needed for development and adoption of a new version of the VVSG by having all interested parties at the table at the same time. The longer-term aim is to make the process by which subsequent new VVSG versions are created and revised more nimble in responding to new technological developments in voting and in associated areas such as accessibility, security, and usability.

The NIST and the EAC areas of focus for the working groups are in voting system technology, including accessibility, usability, interoperability, security, and testing. These focus areas will inform the development of VVSG requirements and the processes for VVSG revision.

NIST Voting Public Working Groups

Announcements and Information

Election Cycle Groups : for development of VVSG requirements

Constituency Groups : for informing the election cycle groups

Public Working Group Guidance

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Voting Program focuses on the development of community-based guidelines, metrics, and guidelines that inform the development of the Election Assistance Commission's (EAC) Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG). This effort is undertaken in partnership with interested Federal, commercial, and private sector parties through the formation of public working groups. The key provisions for forming and managing these working groups are summarized below:

Formation and Scope: Public working groups are established by the NIST Voting Program to pursue its goals for informing the development of a new version of the VVSG through a combined public-private effort. Input from government, commercial, and academic sector individuals and entities is considered by the Program in evaluating the formation or dissolution of a public working group, including its initial and continuing scope and tasking.

Constituency vs. Election Cycle Groups: Constituency groups are for development of guidance or deliverables that may inform the election cycle groups. In addition constituency group members will meet to discuss the activities of each election cycle group to help ensure each constituency group's interests are covered throughout the process. The election cycle groups will take input from the constituency groups so as to develop or inform requirements development for consideration by the EAC's Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC).

Membership: Participation in a public working group is open and free to all interested parties; there are no membership fees.

Leadership: Public working groups are led by NIST and EAC staff acting as Chairs and/or Vice-Chairs along with designated members.

Liaisons: To promote coordination among the working groups, individual Groups may designate liaisons to one or more other groups as needed.

Sub-groups: Each public working group may create one or more sub-groups to focus on a specific task and an associated deliverable. Any deliverables or recommendations of the sub-group are advisory only to the parent working group. Sub-groups are dissolved at the completion of their tasking or at any time upon the direction of the parent working group.

Sub-group Leadership: The heads of sub-groups - "Leaders" and/or "Co-Leaders" - are designated by the Chair or Vice-Chair of the parent working group from among the working group membership based on knowledge and interest in the sub-group tasking.

Meeting Frequency: Each working group will establish its own schedule for meetings and teleconferences.

Products: The products of working groups prepared at the direction of NIST and EAC staff and/or its designated representatives are subject to NIST and EAC review and are intended for public release at NIST's discretion.
