Municipal Clerks are required by law to accumulate six hours of election training between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010 to recertify for the 2011-2012 term.  For new municipal clerks or clerks who lost their certification, three of the six hours must be the Municipal Clerk Core Curriculum training (MCT Core) class or the equivalent Clerk Institute training.  Election training that counts toward recertification can be found here on our website.  Please recall that we extended the deadline for clerks who were short on hours for the 2007-2008 term to February 13, 2009.  Those hours may not be counted again as training taken in the current term. 


Municipal clerks must report the election training they have received to us for credit.   The document attached above lists the clerks who have not reported a minimum of six hours of election training during the 2009-2010 term as of February 21, 2011.  If you have hours to report in order to recertify for the current 2011-2012 term, please fill out and submit this form to report your election training to the G.A.B.   No other documentation is required, but all election training must be reported to us using this form.   This list will be updated each Friday.

Municipal clerks who have not taken and reported six hours of election training during the 2009-2010 term, must retake the 3-hour Municipal Clerk Core training class and three hours of election training - for a total of six hours - by the February 15, 2011 primary to be certified to conduct the election. 


We would appreciate county clerks sharing this information with their municipal clerks without email.  Thank you for your continued cooperation.  If you have questions or are not listed, please contact Allison Coakley: or (608) 261-2033.  County clerks, deputy clerks and other office staff are not required to be certified, but if you are working on clerk certification, have taken the MCT Core course and would like to know what we have recorded for you, feel free to contact me.
