Webinar for Clerks, Chief Inspectors and Poll Workers
Election Day Duties – Special Topics
Wednesday, February 1, 2017:  10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Web link:

This webinar will provide a general review of some special duties that election inspectors have on Election Day.  Some of these procedures may not get a lot of attention because election inspectors don’t encounter these situations very often, but it’s crucial information to have in case they do.  Voter registration, remaking ballots, counting votes, challenging a voter, issuing a provisional ballot, curbside voting and assisting voters will be covered.  A copy of the PowerPoint will be posted Tuesday. 

The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the WEC website for clerks and election inspectors to review at their convenience:  The training counts toward training hours whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
