The EAC Standards Board will review and provide comment on the TGDC's resolutions from the January 2011 TGDC meeting, with a focus on Software Independence, to provide election official feedback to NIST and the TGDC.
The EAC Standards Board Virtual Public Forum was established to enable the Standards Board to provide comment 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 Standards Board will not take any votes or propose any resolutions during the 14-day forum of May 31-June 14, 2011. Members will post comments about TGDC's work related to Software Independence to provide election official feedback to the TGDC and NIST.

If it is determined by the chair of the Start Printed Page 27642Standards Board that the meeting period will be extended, an amended notice will be posted in the Federal Register and on the EAC Web site at http://www.eac.gov for an extension of five days or more. Any shorter extension will only be posted at http://www.eac.gov as posting in the Federal Register will not be practicable.
