SUBJECT: Implementation of New WisVote Access Policy

Effective today, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has implemented a new WisVote Access Policy. The policy consists of three main requirements:

  1. Completing the Securing WisVote training series, which is a collection of six learning modules available on our electronic Learning Center (www.electiontraining.gab.wi.gov) platform (duration of completion approximately 85 minutes);
  2. Electronically acknowledging and accepting the terms and conditions of our new WisVote User Agreement; and
  3. Electronically acknowledging and accepting the terms and conditions of our updated WisVote Confidentiality Agreement.

From this point forward, new users must complete the Securing WisVote training series, in addition to all other required training associated with their access level, before they will be provided WisVote login credentials. New users will be prompted to acknowledge and accept the terms of the updated User and Confidentiality Agreements on their initial login to the WisVote system. Current WisVote users are required to complete the electronic learning modules and to electronically sign the two new agreements prior to the General Election in November. For your reference, we have included two checklists that outline the new requirements with this communication, one related to the process for existing WisVote users and one for new users.

As always, thank you for your continuous support and contributions in helping keep Wisconsin elections safe! Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Help Desk at 608-261-2028 or via email at elections@wi.gov.
