The Government Accountability Board announced in late July that staff was working on developing a website for military and overseas voters to access their absentee ballots online.  On Friday, September 14, 2012 from 10:00am – 11:30pm, the G.A.B. will conduct a webinar to introduce clerks to the new site.

The new website will replace the current Voter Public Access (http://vpa.wi.gov) site and provide all voters with registration, sample ballot, municipal clerk and polling place information.  In addition, there will be a section for military and permanent overseas voters to request an absentee ballot and access their absentee ballot online.  The new site is called My Vote WI (http://myvote.wi.gov) and will be live on September 17, 2012 for the November General Election.

The new online absentee ballot request and online absentee ballot access with interface with the Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS).  The webinar will provide a tutorial of the new voter services available on the My Vote WI site, the interface with SVRS, and how clerks will be notified of the updates to SVRS.
