Municipal clerks have the responsibility of providing their governing bodies with lists of election inspector nominees for appointment to the 2018-2019 term.  This webinar will address the nomination procedure, including the submission of lists by the county’s primary political parties.  We will also review ballot access procedures utilizing the filing of nomination papers or the caucus system and answer some common questions about residency requirements for elected officials.  

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.
