Web link: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/398193649

The Election Day Officials/Special Topics Webinar will cover specific topics related to the duties and responsibilities of election workers on Election Day for the November election that merit additional clarification, based on requests from clerks and the experiences of and lessons learned from this year’s elections: 

  • Presidential-only Ballots
  • Hospitalized Electors
  • Election Observers
  • Electioneering
  • Challenging Electors
  • Provisional Voting
  • And More!

Reference materials for the webinar will be posted Tuesday morning in this location for clerks to print off.  This webinar will be posted by the Friday following the session on the G.A.B. website for clerks to use for their own education and training their election inspectors and counts toward recertification: http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.   The training counts whether you and/or your election inspectors participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
