Government Accountability Board staff will be deploying new SVRS updates on Saturday, September 21, 2013.

SVRS will be temporarily unavailable from Saturday, September 21 at 4 p.m. through Sunday, September 22 at 10 a.m. in order to deploy these updates.

These updates principally include improvements to the mapping features in SVRS, both in terms of expanding the tools SVRS users have to make sure voters are districted properly and fine-turning some existing tools. Some other minor glitches have also been addressed, many of which were reported by clerks.

  • The attached document, SVRS 8.5 Release, explains the key changes in further detail.
  • An updated SVRS Mapping Chapter will also be released next Friday, September 27.
  • A webinar on the new mapping features will be held on October 23, 2013. This webinar will the first in a new SVRS webinar series.  More information regarding this webinar and the new SVRS webinar series will be posted shortly.

Please contact the Government Accountability Board Help Desk at, or 608-261-2028 if you have any questions regarding this. Thank you.
