                            Call for Volunteers

 Voting equipment that meets the highest standards for quality, accuracy
 and reliability is of vital national interest.  The IEEE Standards
 Association has inaugurated a new standards project, tasked with the
 development of standards for voting equipment, project P1583. The Working
 Group is now seeking technical expert volunteers to join the group.

 The Working Group for project P1583 will develop a standard that
 establishes requirements and evaluation methods for election voting
 equipment. The standard will provide technical specifications for
 electronic, mechanical, and human factors that can be used by
 manufacturers of voting machines or by those purchasing such machines. The
 tests and criteria developed will assure equipment:

    Accessibility
    Accuracy
    Confidentiality
    Reliability
    Security
    Usability

 Volunteers with expertise in the areas detailed above are invited to join
 this working group.

 The next meeting will be held in Austin, Texas. Prospective working group
 members may attend the meeting in person or via teleconference. Meeting
 information is as follows, and an agenda is available upon request.

 November 15, 2001, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM ?      Texas Capital Complex
