We recently released our “Building on the Basics” election administration webinar training series schedule.  Due to positive feedback from county and municipal clerks regarding this method of training, we have developed a new webinar training series that focuses on the Statewide Voter Registration System.

Live Webinar access information and related materials will be posted under “Recent Clerk Communications” on the Monday prior to each webinar.  You must be able to view videos on your computer, using a media application such as Windows Media Player and will be connected to audio using your computer’s speakers.

The webinar recording, related materials and a list of frequently asked questions will be posted shortly after the webcast.  The programs and materials are free for you to download from our website or a disc may be ordered for a small fee:  The live or recorded webcasts may be counted toward the hours clerks need for recertification purposes.  

We will continue to explore education, training and outreach modalities that are effective, can be delivered at a reduced cost and will provide uniform instruction and training across the state.  Please send any questions or comments you have to Allison Coakley: or (608) 261-2033.
