ACM has asked the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to prohibit Internet connections from all voting equipment under an updated set of voluntary guidelines.

Wednesday was the final day for public comment on the high-level principles and guidelines for VVSG (Voluntary Voting System Guidelines) 2.0.

Many states' regulations are based on the current VVSG.

ACM wrote that a blanket “categorical prohibition on the inclusion of any connectivity-enabling devices in election-related equipment [should] include all wireless modems, radios, and any other type of equipment capable of communicating over the internet."

The association also said the guidelines should require fully auditable elections and interoperability of internal voting machine components.
