Our friends at electionline.org, the Pew project, noted that the U.S. Government is asking for your input about voluntary voting guidelines. How to participate, after the jump.

Direct from the weekly electionline.org e-mail:

The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) announced this week that a new online tool will be available for public comment on the draft voluntary voting system guidelines. The public will also be able to view submitted comments. “The initial public comment phase is only the first step in EAC’s inclusive and thorough approach as we move toward the adoption of the next iteration of voluntary voting system guidelines,” said EAC Chair Donetta Davidson. The draft guidelines were prepared by the Technical Guidelines Development Committee and delivered to EAC in August and posted on the EAC’s Web site. The introduction of the public comment tool launches the first of four phases leading to the adoption of a final version.
