                 Purpose: In accordance with the Government in the Sunshine Act
                (Sunshine Act), Public Law 94-409, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552b), the U.S.
                Election Assistance Commission (EAC) will conduct a virtual annual
                meeting of the EAC Standards Board to conduct regular business, discuss
                EAC updates and upcoming programs, and discuss the Voluntary Voting
                System Guidelines (VVSG) 2.0 and electronic poll book pilot program
                next steps and supply chain considerations.
                 Agenda: The U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) Standards
                Board will hold their 2022 Annual Meeting primarily to discuss next
                steps regarding the VVSG 2.0 Requirements and implementation, the
                status of the EAC's e-poll book pilot program, and supply chain issues
                affecting the 2022 midterm elections. This meeting will include a
                question-and-answer discussion between board members and EAC staff.
                 Board members will also review FACA Board membership guidelines and
                policies with EAC Acting General Counsel and receive a general update
                about the EAC programming. The Board will also elect two new members to
                the Executive Board Committee.
                 Background: On February 10, 2021, the U.S. Election Assistance
                Commission (EAC) announced the adoption of the Voluntary Voting System
                Guidelines (VVSG) 2.0; the VVSG 2.0 is the fifth iteration of national
                level voting system standards. The Federal Election Commission
                published the first two sets of federal standards in 1990 and 2002. The
                EAC then adopted Version 1.0 of the VVSG on December 13, 2005. In an
                effort to update and improve version 1.0 of the VVSG, on March 31,
                2015, the EAC commissioners unanimously approved VVSG 1.1.
                 The full agenda will be posted in advance on the EAC website:
                https://www.eac.gov.
                 Status: This meeting will be open to the public.
