April is the last regularly scheduled election for the year.  This webinar will review what we’ve learned during this busy election cycle, including last year’s recount.  We will also cover any legislative changes that have been introduced so far this year that may impact election administration.  Online voter registration will be up and running and we will take a look at how it’s working and answer any questions you may have.  

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:  http://elections.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.  The training counts toward training hours whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.

Live Webinar Requirements

You must be able to view videos on your computer, using a media application such as Windows Media Player. You will be connected to audio using your computer’s speakers.  If you are unable to access the audio over your computer speakers, you may select “Use Telephone” after joining the webinar.  Using the telephone for audio is a toll charge.  If you have questions about the technical aspects of the webinar, please contact the Elections Help Desk at elections@wi.gov or (608) 261-2028.

The webinar has a maximum of 500 participants.  In response to input from clerks, phones will be muted to reduce ambient noise.  Questions may be typed in and will be answered by WEC staff for the benefit of the participants as time allows.  A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) generated from the webinar will be posted after the webcast.

We look forward to you joining us for the webinar on Wednesday.  If you have any questions, please contact me:  allison.coakley@wi.gov or (608) 261-2033.  Thank you.
