Some may consider 2017 an “off election year,” but it was still a busy one! We will take a look at any legislative or administrative changes in laws and procedures that impact elections and local election officials and forecast what may be ahead for us in 2018. We know that election security will continue to be of primary interest next year. Also, we will also provide you with an update on the progress of electronic poll books and plans to pilot them in several municipalities during the 2018 February Primary and April Election.

The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the WEC website for clerks 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.
