Please note that this memo covers several important SVRS updates.

  • SVRS users may no longer be able to directly print poll books or export using the V:\ or the U:\ shortcut. With the addition of an upside-down signature block for voter signatures, poll book files are now much larger. This means that the old methods of printing or exporting them may not work. Directions on how to export and print a poll book file are attached. These directions replace the Export or Print Poll Book and the Retrieve and Print Poll Book sections in the Poll Books chapter of the SVRS Manual.
  • On February 1st, SVRS users were notified that the Voter Redistricting Trifold Mailing was returning an incorrect number of records and should not be used. The Voter Redistricting Trifold Mailing is now working. Directions on how to export that mailing have been revised and are available in the Redistricting Checklist document on G.A.B. website.
  • The Webinars for Phase 1 and Phase 2 are now posted on the G.A.B. website. You are welcome to review them if you wish, but keep in mind some information is now outdated. The Redistricting Checklist and FAQ documents available on our website have more current information.

If you have a question, please make sure you check the FAQs posted on the G.A.B. redistricting page. Many common questions and helpful suggestions are covered. This and other redistricting information is available at: http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/redistricting. If you have questions on the Redistricting project, please continue to use the incident tracker as requested in the training documents. If you need to contact the Help Desk, the email address is [email protected]

Thank you.
