This webinar has been removed because it contains guidance pertaining to the implementation of a voter photo ID requirement which has been enjoined by the U.S. Supreme Court’s order of October 9, 2014.  In the event that the photo ID requirement is reinstated, the G.A.B. will re-post this webinar.

This week’s webinar, originally titled, “Election Day Duties – Start to Finish” has been changed to “Election Duties and the Voter Photo ID Law.”  As you are probably aware, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago has lifted the injunction against the voter photo ID provisions of 2011 Wisconsin Act 23.
