Under Wisconsin law, each municipal clerk must attend training sponsored by the Wisconsin Elections Commission every two years. Wis. Stat. § 7.15(1m). In order to comply with this training requirement, municipal clerks must obtain six hours of Election Administration Manual for Wisconsin Municipal Clerks training every two-year term, beginning January 1 of even-numbered years and ending on December 31 of odd-numbered years. EL 12.03(2).
Training “sponsored” by the WEC includes any training for municipal clerks that the WEC approves. This includes, but is not limited to, election trainings conducted by county clerks, online training presentations, and election administration or WisVote webinar sessions, either live or recorded. EL 12.03 (4), (5)
