Webinar Description

We are quickly approaching the end of 2019 and you know what that means – candidates asking questions and filing papers for the 2020 spring election.  Municipal clerks will be nominating their new slate of election inspectors to their governing bodies for appointment in the 2020-2021 term.  In this webinar, we will review ballot access procedures and election inspector appointment process, including inspectors nominated by the two main political parties.  The end of this year also marks the completion of the 2018-2019 training term for clerks, chief inspectors and other election workers.  We will review training requirements to ensure that all election officials are up-to-date and compliant with state training laws.  Materials for the webinar will be posted Tuesday.  
    
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:  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.
