In late August 2012, the G.A.B. launched a “Back to Basics” approach to election administration education and training with the “Preparing for the August Partisan Primary.”  The eighth webinar in our training series is:  

Webinar for Clerks, Chief Inspectors and Election Inspectors
Special Election Topics:  Situations and Troubleshooting
Wednesday, January 30, 2013, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Web link: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/869813248

The Special Election Topics:  Situations and Troubleshooting Webinar will cover specific topics related to the duties and responsibilities of election officials that merit additional clarification, based on feedback we have received from county and municipal clerks: 

  • Voter Resources
  • Special Voting Deputies and Absentee Voting in Certain Care Facilities
  • Issuing & Processing Absentee Ballots
  • Election Day Registration
  • Ineligible Voter List
  • Electioneering
  • Election Observers
  • Voting Equipment
  • Reconciling Poll Lists
  • Websites/Election Night Postings

Reference materials for the webinar have been posted in this location for clerks to print off.  The webcast 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: http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.   The training counts toward recertification whether you and/or your election inspectors participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
