To supplement the online training available in the WisVote Learning Center, we will be conducting several WisVote webinars in the run-up to the 2018 General Election. We will cover the integration of WEDCS and Canvass into WisVote, updates to WisVote addressing, and a review of issues common to every election.

Live Webinar access information and related materials will be posted under “Recent Clerk Communications” on the Monday prior to each webinar. You must be able to view videos on your computer using your computer’s speakers and a media application such as Windows Media Player.

The webinar recording, related materials, and a list of frequently asked questions will be posted shortly after the webcast. The programs and materials are free for you to download from our website or a disc may be ordered for a small fee here: http://elections.wi.gov/node/2622. The live or recorded webcasts may be counted toward the hours clerks need for recertification purposes.

We will continue to explore education, training and outreach modalities that are effective, can be delivered at a reduced cost, and will provide uniform instruction and training across the state. Please send any questions or comments you have to Allison Coakley: allison.coakley@wi.gov or (608) 261-2033.
