Registration Link:   https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3785381446494227984

This webinar will provide clerks with an opportunity to ask Commission staff how best to adapt recommended election day procedures to fit their current circumstances.  This will not be a formal training presentation, so we ask that you review the materials that we have created and posted to the agency website before attending one of these sessions.  We will also provide an update regarding requested supplies and poll workers.

•    Election Day Training Webinar and Checklist: We recently posted an Election Day and COVID-19 training webinar for clerks to use to train their poll workers: https://vimeo.com/402027273. We have also developed a checklist for use at the polling place on election day that is available here: https://elections.wi.gov/node/6787

•    Additional Training Resources and Clerk Guidance: There are many new materials regarding poll worker recruitment, training and guidance on issues such as indefinitely confined voters, expanded curbside voting, drive-through voting and hospitalized voters available here: https://elections.wi.gov/covid-19.
