Webinar for Clerks, Chief Inspectors and Election Inspectors

Election Day Duties from 7 a.m.to 8 p.m.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Web link: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/974751209

The Election Day Duties from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Webinar will cover specific topics related to the duties and responsibilities of election workers on Election Day that merit additional clarification, based on requests from clerks and the experiences of and lessons learned from this year’s elections: 

  • Opening the Polls
  • Election Day Registration
  • Proof of Residence
  • Counting Ballots
  • Reconciling Poll Lists
  • Completing Forms
  • And More!

Reference materials for the webinar will be posted in this location by Tuesday afternoon for clerks to
print off.  This webinar will be posted by the Friday following the session on the G.A.B. website for clerks to use for their own education and training their election inspectors and counts toward recertification: http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.   The training counts whether you and/or your election inspectors participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.  Clerks need to report their training to us for clerk recertification hours, but track the training their election inspectors receive themselves.
