Clerks Memo (Redistricting Video October 7 2011).pdf33.61 KB

As you may know, starting in 2012, districts in SVRS will be managed using maps instead of address ranges.  Clerks will no longer be required to update address ranges in SVRS.  The G.A.B. technical team is pulling all of the new districts created by Redistricting into SVRS.  Clerks should not update their address ranges with the new districts.  Once the new maps have been loaded into SVRS, clerks will use the maps to manage their district boundaries instead of address ranges.

Many clerks have asked questions about these new features and how they will work in SVRS.  G.A.B. staff are very excited to announce that we have prepared a demonstration video for clerks to help explain these new changes.  Please click on the following link to view the video:

We hope this video is a helpful tool to help clerks visualize and understand the new changes to SVRS.  G.A.B. staff will continue to use videos such as this as a way to communicate information to clerks.

If you have questions on the video, or on the Redistricting project, please do not hesitate to contact the Help Desk at gabhelpdesk@wi.gov, or (608) 261-2028.  Thank you.
