Webinar for County and Municipal Clerks
SVRS Data Requests and Reports

In this webinar we will discuss how to respond to SVRS data requests that you receive.  We will address what information can be released, what information is confidential, the pricing structure and how to create commonly requested reports in SVRS.  We will also cover the G.A.B. data request process, for those more complex requests that you would like to refer to the G.A.B.  Finally, we will discuss the general importance of election data reporting.

Reference materials for the webinar have been posted on our website as an attachment.  The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the G.A.B. website for clerks to use for their own education:   The training counts toward clerk recertification whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
