Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG)
Recommendations to the EAC, August 31, 2007

At the August 17, 2007, meeting of the Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC), the TGDC voted unanimously to approve the draft VVSG recommendations subject to additional final edits by NIST staff. On September 4, 2007, the final TGDC VVSG recommendations were transmitted to the Election Assistance Commission (EAC).


NIST has developed a companion document to the VVSG for use by the election community and the public. This document contains overviews of the VVSG requirements and presents VVSG material in a more concise format.

The companion document is available at: http://www.votingvideos.nist.gov/TrainingVideos/VVSG-Companion-Document-20080702.pdf
