Special Voting Deputies (SVDs) conduct absentee voting at certain care facilities and qualified retirement homes. Clerks are required to send SVDs to these facilities if they meet a threshold of registered voters and absentee requests, but clerks may also choose to send them if they feel the residents of the facility may have difficulty getting to the polls on Election Day. This webinar will review the special absentee voting procedures for voters who are occupants of residential care facilities and retirement homes that are required by law or designated by the municipal clerk to be served by Special Voting Deputies.

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.
