Who is a member of the Local Board of Canvassers? When does the Municipal Board of Canvassers meet and what do they do? This webinar will review the roles of the various Boards of Canvassers and cover when and when not to reject an absentee ballot. We will also go over the guiding principles to consider when counting write-in votes and apply them to several examples. A copy of the presentation will be available before the webinar.

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.
