Welcome to the world of elections! Your duties as a new clerk may seem overwhelming right now, but we are here to help! This webinar will introduce clerks to our agency and staff and provide information on training requirements for both you and your election workers and the wide variety of resources available to help you do a great job! We will also review the importance of election security preparation and contingency planning. Experienced clerks are welcome to attend and offer any insights they may have for running a smooth election. Materials will be posted Tuesday.

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: http://elections.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars. The training counts toward training hours whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.

Live Webinar Requirements

You must be able to view videos on your computer, using a media application such as Windows Media Player. You will be connected to audio using your computer’s speakers. If you are unable to access the audio over your computer speakers, you may select “Use Telephone” after joining the webinar. Using the telephone for audio is a toll charge. If you have questions about the technical aspects of the webinar, please contact the Elections Help Desk at elections@wi.gov or (608) 261-2028.

The webinar has a maximum of 500 participants. In response to input from clerks, phones will be muted to reduce ambient noise. Questions may be typed in and will be answered by WEC staff for the benefit of the participants as time allows. A list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) generated from the webinar will be posted after the webcast.

We look forward to you joining us for the webinar on Wednesday. If you have any questions, please contact me: allison.coakley@wi.gov or (608) 261-2033. Thank you.
