To supplement our current training program and outreach efforts we have developed a new WisVote training webinar series to cover the Fall 2020 election cycle. WisVote webinars are intended for current and possibly future users of the WisVote data management system. 

We will once again post the webinar schedule with access links to allow interested clerks and their election workers to sign-up in advance of all webinars.  After you have signed up, you will receive reminder emails one week, one day, and one hour before the webinar is scheduled to start.  We will continue to post Live Webinar access information and related materials under “Recent Clerk Communications” no later than the Monday prior to each webinar.  You must be able to view videos on your computer using your computer’s speakers and use a media application such as Windows Media Player.

The webinar recording, related materials, and a list of frequently asked questions, will be posted shortly after the webcast.  The posted webcasts will now include indexing links on the Vimeo page.  This allows clerks to jump directly to a specific topic covered during a webinar.  The programs and materials are free for you to download from our website or a disc may be ordered for a small fee:  https://elections.wi.gov/node/6554.  The live or recorded webcasts may be counted toward the hours clerks need for recertification purposes.

We will continue to explore education, training and outreach modalities that are effective, can be delivered at a reduced cost and will provide uniform instruction and training across the state.  Please send any questions or comments you have to us:  [email protected] or (608) 261-2028.
