Spring elections are right around the corner and this webinar will provide users with information on what and how to prepare for upcoming elections in WisVote. Topics will include basic election set-up tasks such as election plans, polling places, contests and candidates. We will also touch on frequently questioned topics including Reg List Alerts, Ineligible Voter List and DMV checks. Materials for the webinar will be posted today.

The webcast will be posted by the Wednesday 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.
