The U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s Technical Guidelines Development Committee will hold its next meeting on February 8-9 in Washington, D.C. The meeting will provide updates on the development of the next generation of voluntary voting system guidelines.

The discussion will include cybersecurity, human factors, accessibility, interoperability, testing, standards setting, mapping state and federal requirements, and the changing legislative landscape for voting technologies.

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.
