IEEE working on e-voting standards

This article from Wired News indicates that the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) are “in the process of drafting new standards for electronic voting systems.” Worryingly, the article suggests that the IEEE committee working on this has been dominated by the voting machine companies:

The committee has, in the past, been dominated by people who oppose adding a paper trail to e-voting machines and by people who oppose examining commercial off-the-shelf software used in voting machines

More encouragingly, however, David Dill of verifiedvoting.org is also a member of the committee.
