Does an “off election year” actually exist?  This webinar will take a look at the important national and local news, events and topics we addressed in 2019 and how they will continue to impact the busy 2020 election cycle.  Clerks and election workers have been asking for a revised version of the voter registration application (EL-131).  After careful review and usability testing, we have developed a new version of the application and will go over the changes to the form in detail.  Election security will continue to be front and center and receive a great deal of attention from state and federal agencies, elected officials, clerks and their election workers, and voters.  We will provide an update on the Commission’s election security program and our efforts to work with federal and state governments and our clerk-partners to ensure that our elections continue to be fair and open.  Materials will be posted Tuesday afternoon.
    
The webcast will be posted by the Thursday 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.  The training counts toward training hours whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
