Requirements for voting on IEEE 802 3 drafts


Draft standards within the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group pass through a two stage balloting process, first through Working Group Ballot, then through Sponsor Ballot. For an overview of this process see subclause 7.1 of the Operating Rules of IEEE Project 802 Working Group 802.3, CSMA/CD LANs.

If you wish to vote on an IEEE 802.3 draft standard at the Working Group Ballot stage you need to be a member of the IEEE 802.3 Working Group. If you wish to vote on an IEEE 802.3 draft standard at the Sponsor Ballot stage you need to either be a member of the IEEE Standards Association, or pay an equivalent per ballot fee, and join the particular balloting group.

Note: A Frequently Asked Questions page is available covering the most commonly asked questions about the balloting process as well as some additional explanatory material.
