To supplement the online training available in the WisVote Learning Center, we will be conducting several WisVote webinars during the 2019 Spring Election cycle. There will be a total of six webinars covering a wide range of WisVote topics; a complete list can be found on page two of this memo.

Live Webinar access information and related materials will be posted under “Recent Clerk Communications” no later than the Monday prior to each webinar. You must be able to view videos on your computer using your computer’s speakers and a media application such as Windows Media Player.

The webinar recording, related materials and a list of frequently asked questions, will be posted shortly after the webcast. The programs and materials are free for you to download from our website or a disc may be ordered for a small fee: http://elections.wi.gov/node/2622. The live or recorded webcasts may be counted toward the hours clerks need for recertification purposes.

We will continue to explore education, training and outreach modalities that are effective, can be delivered at a reduced cost and will provide uniform instruction and training across the state. Please send any questions or comments you have to Allison Coakley: allison.coakley@wi.gov or (608) 261-2033.
