I’m getting questions from county clerks with respect to submitting the canvass certification to the G.A.B.  Please refer to the following excerpt from the High Priority Email sent October 29, 2010 and posted to the Clerk Communication page.  Number 3 asks you to mail the original signed document.  Since the volume of paper is greatly reduced, please mail to signed original document and provide first-class postage (you do not have to overnight it if you have scanned an emailed it).  

Excerpt from e-mail sent 10/29/10:

“At the very top of the “For Use by Clerks Column,” is a new report called Federal/State Office Certification Report for G.A.B.  This is the certification report you will generate for submission to G.A.B.  The report consists of only the Summary Statement and the Certification of the Board of Canvassers. 

Certification Instructions

1)    When you have completed the entry of election results, and all necessary amendments have been made, print the Federal/State Office Certification Report for G.A.B. for your Board of Canvassers to sign.

2)    Once it is signed, scan the entire document (summary statement and certification) and email it to the G.A.B. at

3)    Immediately mail the original signed document (summary statement and signed certification) to the G.A.B. at P.O. Box 7984, Madison, WI  53707-7984.

4)    Print the Tabular Statement and retain with your copy of the Summary Statement and Certification.

Thank you.
