PURPOSE:

The EAC Board of Advisors will review and provide comment on Phase II of the Election Operations Assessment. Phase II of the Election Operations Assessment contains threat trees for the seven types of voting types covered by the Election Operations Assessment. These threat trees are intended to capture risks to the various types of voting systems and the possible mitigations. These threat trees feed into the Risk Assessment tool that will be used by the EAC and NIST in their work with the Voluntary Voting System Guidelines.

The EAC Board of Advisors Virtual Meeting Room was established to enable the Board of Advisors to conduct business in an efficient manner in a public forum, including being able to review and discuss draft documents, when it is not feasible for an in-person board meeting. The Board of Advisors will not take any votes or propose any resolutions during the 12-day forum of February 8-February 19, 2010. Members will post comments about Phase II of the Election Operations Assessment.

This activity is open to the public. The public may view the proceedings of this special forum by visiting the EAC Board of Advisors virtual meeting room at http://www.eac.gov at any time between Monday, February 8, 2010, 9 a.m. EST and Friday, February 19, 2010, 9 p.m. EST. The public also may view Phase II of the election operations assessment, which will be posted on EAC's Web site beginning February 8, 2010. The public may file written statements to the EAC Board of Advisors at boardofadvisors@eac.gov. Data on EAC's Web site is accessible to visitors with disabilities and meets the requirements of section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
