Congratulations on your new position! This webinar will introduce clerks to our agency and staff and provide information on training requirements for local election officials and the wide variety of resources available to help you do a great job before, during and after an election. We will also review the importance of election security preparation and incident prevention. Experienced clerks are welcome to attend and offer any insights they may have for running a smooth election.  Materials for the webinar will be posted by Tuesday morning.  

The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the WEC website for clerks to review at their convenience:  The training counts toward training hours whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
