At its September 25, 2018 meeting, the Wisconsin Elections Commission directed staff to use the prior Canvass Reporting System for the 2018 General Election and to provide updated canvass training materials to all counties. This webinar will review recording, certifying and notifying the WEC of official election results using CRS.

Webinar materials will be posted Wednesday afternoon. The webcast will be posted by the Friday following the session on the Elections Commission website for clerks and their election officials to review at their convenience: https://elections.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars. The training counts toward clerk training hours whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
