Subject: Where is EML required and used?
For the white paper I'm putting together urging requirement of EML
in the U.S. EAC's 2007 VVSG, I'd like to be able to cite current countries
or other election jurisdictions where EML is now required or used.
Several items are cited on the TC web page at http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=election
but I was hoping there might now be others as well.
I thought I heard that EML was used in the Netherlands, and is now required
being considered for future requirement in the UK and EU.Election Markup Language (EML) Recommended to Member States by Council of Europe
seems a bit dated (2004!).
Any other URL's or other citations you could provide would be most appreciated.
I'm also glad to report that I've had excellent conversations with Ian Piper at
Premier (Diebold) as well as Peter Z. at ESS and have been exchanging email with
Neal McClure at Hart Intercivic (which may be acquiring Sequoia), and it sounds
like the vendors would LIKE to have EML required as part of the EAC's new VVSG.
Now I'm trying to figure out how we can try to help make that happen.
I hope to send you a draft of the paper later today.
