This webinar will provide a general review of some basic and not-so-basic duties that election inspectors have on Election Day.  Some Election Day procedures, such as registering voters and remaking ballots, are fairly common duties for most election workers.  Other procedures for challenging a voter or issuing a provisional ballot may not get a lot of attention because election inspectors do not encounter these situations very often.  Regardless, this is crucial information for new election workers and a good review for more seasoned ones.  A copy of the presentation will be posted on Tuesday.  

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:  https://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.

Live Webinar Requirements
