SUMMARY: The Technical Guidelines Development Committee (the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Technical Guidelines Development 
Committee (the ``Development Committee'') has scheduled a plenary 
meeting for March 29, 2006. The Committee was established pursuant to 
42 U.S.C. 15361, to act in the public interest to assist the Executive 
Director of the Election Assistance Commission in the development of 
the voluntary voting system guidelines. The Technical Guidelines 
Development Committee held their first plenary meeting on July 9, 2004. 
At this meeting, the Development Committee agreed to a resolution 
forming three working groups: (1) Human Factors & Privacy; (2) Security 
& Transparency; and (3) Core Requirements & Testing to gather 
information and public input on relevant issues. The information 
gathered by the working groups was analyzed at the second meeting of 
the Development Committee January 18 and 19, 2005. Resolutions were 
debated and adopted by the TGDC at the January plenary session. The 
resolutions defined technical work tasks for NIST that will assist the 
TGDC in developing recommendations for voluntary voting system 
guidelines. At the March 9, 2005 meeting, NIST scientists presented 
preliminary reports on technical work tasks defined in resolutions 
adopted at the January plenary meeting and adopted one additional 
resolution. The Development Committee approved initial recommendations 
for voluntary voting system guidelines at the April 20th and 21st, 2005 
meeting. The Development Committee began consideration of future 
recommendations for voluntary voting system guidelines at the September 
29, 2005 meeting. At the March 29th, 2006 meeting, the Development 
Committee will review and approve draft technical guidance documents 
that will form the bases for recommendations for future voluntary 
voting system guidelines.
