Calling all clerks!  If you are new to elections or just interested in “what’s new” for election training, this webinar is for you!  We are rolling out a new municipal clerk checklist to guarantee that all clerks are familiar with state training requirements and resources, how to get access to the WEC Learning Center and tips on navigating the WEC website.  We will also take a look at the election administration and WisVote webinar schedules for the next election cycle and share new training agendas developed for clerks to use to train their election workers in voter registration, poll book management and processing absentee ballots at the polls, to name just a few!
The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the WEC website for clerks to review at their convenience and will include indexing by-topic:  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 [email protected] 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.
