The U.S. Election Assistance Commission announced the members of the renewed Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC). The Committee will hold its first meeting on July 20-21 at the NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, Maryland to begin the process of moving forward with the next generation of voluntary voting system guidelines.

The 15-member advisory committee provides assistance with the development of voluntary voting system guidelines. The members are jointly appointed by the EAC and the Director of the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). It includes representatives from the EAC, NIST, the U.S. Access Board, the National Association of State Election Directors, and standards setting organizations. Four technical experts also serve on the committee. NIST Director Willie E. May serves as the Chair.
