The Voter Registration Form (EL-131) is the most used and most visible of the forms that the Wisconsin Elections Commission is required to maintain.  To prepare for the 2020 election cycle, the WEC has revised the EL-131 based on many usability tests with voters, clerks, and voter outreach groups across the state.  This webinar will discuss the changes to the EL-131.  Materials will be posted on Thursday.

The webcast will be posted by the Friday following the session on the WEC website for clerks to review at their convenience and will include indexing by-topic:  http://elections.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.
