To supplement the online training available in the WisVote Learning Center, we will be conducting several WisVote webinars to prepare for the spring 2017 elections, review some post-election activities and provide a preview of WisVote “coming attractions.”

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:  http://elections.wi.gov/node/2622.  The live or recorded webcasts may be counted toward the hours clerks need for recertification purposes. 

Please send any questions or comments you have to Allison Coakley:  allison.coakley@wi.gov or (608) 261-2033.

WisVote 101 for New Users

February 9, 2017, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. (Note date change!)
This webinar is intended for any new user of WisVote, whether they are a new clerk or a relier clerk who is using WisVote for the first time.  The webinar covers broad concepts for voter registration and election management through the WisVote system as well as outlining some common missteps to avoid.

Common Pitfalls in the Spring Election

March 7, 2017, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Even though many of us have over a year of WisVote experience behind us, this webinar will explore common pitfalls clerks may experience during Spring Elections. 

The MyVote-WisVote Connection

March 14, 2017, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
This webinar will examine the connection between the voter-facing MyVote system and the WisVote voter registration database.  We will explore how they related, how information transferred between these two systems, and when and how clerks are notified of new voter information.

Postcards!

April 25, 2017, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Election Day Registrations (EDRs), 4-year maintenance and more!  What is the difference between each type of post card, when does the WEC send postcards to voters, and what should be done when a postcard is returned to the clerk?

WisVote Coming Attractions

May 16, 2017, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
What’s next for WisVote?  Tune in and find out!  We will take a look at WEDC, Canvass, Felon Audit, and Incompetent and Confidential Voters.
