Webinar for Clerks, Chief Inspectors and Poll Workers
Spoiling and Remaking Ballots
Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Registration Link:

A Wisconsin voter can “spoil” his or her ballot up to three times and receive a new ballot within certain deadlines before Election Day and at the polling place if they make a mistake. We will review the deadlines for spoiling a ballot and requesting a new one and the process of spoiling and issuing ballots at the polling place on Election Day. This webinar will also review why a ballot may need to be remade at the polls on Election Day and the process for doing so.

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.
