Last scheduled election of the year! We will share some important reminders for this busy election, including some back-to-basics review of proof of residence and Photo ID. We will also spotlight some not-so-basic key Election Day and post-Election Day duties such as remaking ballots and when to drawdown (it’s less often than you may think).

Please review the materials before printing as you may not wish to print off every document in the packet: PowerPoint presentation pages 1-8; clerk communications and templates pages 9-40; proof of residence/proof of identification pages 41-44, counting votes, page 45.

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.
