Webinar for Clerks, Chief Inspectors and Poll Workers
Wednesday, January 24, 2018: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Registration Link:

Election inspectors count the votes at the polls on election night, but the official results of the elections are not determined until each official board of canvassers – for the municipality, county, state, school district, or other special purpose district – has met and completed the official canvass of their respective offices. This webinar will outline the canvass process for the Municipal Board of Canvassers (MBOC), discuss the composition of the MBOC, review the canvass statement and other documentation and discuss when the MBOC can meet and if it needs to reconvene. We will also provide some guidance for the County Board of Canvassers’ process after an election. A copy of the powerpoint presentation is posted in 3 slides per page and 1 slide per page versions.  

The webcast will be posted by the Thursday following the session on the WEC website for clerks and their election workers 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.
