  1. To Show /Join Ballot Invitations ...

  1. Balloting a standard … 

Note: This link shows all the open Ballots for which YOU have joined the ballot pool. Ballots are usually open for 30 days. Recirculation Ballots are usually only open for 10 days.

  1. To initiate a Ballot Invitation... 

NOTE: PAR for a new standard first requires Transformer Admin SC approval; and Standards Coordinator (W Bartley) must set up the Project and appoint WG Chair in MyProject, before the PAR is initiated.

A PAR for Revision of a Standard does not require this approval....but the WG Chair must be the “chair” in MyProject.

  1. To initiate a PAR (or modify an existing PAR, extend an approved PAR) 

  1. To “start” a Ballot... initiate-ballot-selection

  1. To “start” a Ballot Recirculation...  

  1. To submit your Standard to REVCOM ... 

The RevCom process is not entirely automated yet. This link will take you to the web page with the REVCOM Submittal Form. I find it easier if you open this page, print a blank form, then close it. Then gather the information you will need, fill out the form by hand, then launch this page again, and fill out the form, on-line. Hint: You will want to click on "create" to start a new form.
