Voting System Standards is a set of minimum functional and performance requirements for electronic voting systems, which may include specified test procedures to be used to ensure that voting equipment meets the requirements.
The FEC issued the first voluntary voting system standards in 1990 and revised them in 2002. In 2002, HAVA assigned responsibility for updating the federal voluntary voting system standards to EAC. The federal voluntary voting system standards issued by EAC in December 2005 were known as the Voluntary Voting System Guidelines. EAC has issued a draft of the 2007 guidelines for public comment.
