Webinar for Clerks, Chief Inspectors and Poll Workers
The Three Rs: Recounts, Recalls & Referenda
Wednesday, September 19, 2018: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Registration Link:

Some county and municipal clerks have experienced “The Three Rs” more often than others, but every clerk should have a working knowledge of these election processes – or know where to find them! This webinar will provide clerks with a general overview of the procedures used to conduct a recount of an election result, the recall of an elected official, and who can and for which reasons petition for a referendum. We will also review approaching military and overseas voting deadlines.

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.
