Last year, the G.A.B. launched a “Back to Basics” approach to election administration education using webinar programming.  The second year of the series, “Building on the Basics,” begins with a training webinar focused on election administration training for school district clerks.  County and municipal clerks may also find the information useful when working with school district clerks during special or referenda elections.

The Election Administration Training for School District Clerks Webinar will cover specific topics related to the duties and responsibilities of election officials that merit additional clarification, based on feedback we have received from school, county and municipal clerks: 

  • Notices
  • Candidates and Other Registrants
  • Campaign Finance Reporting
  • Communicating with County Clerks
  • Ballots
  • Referenda Questions
  • Post-Election Activities
  • And more!

Reference materials for the webinar have been posted on our website as an attachment.  The webcast will be posted by the Friday following the session on the G.A.B. website for clerks to use for their own education:  http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-training/webinars.   The training counts toward clerk recertification whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date. 

Live Webinar Requirements

You must be able to view videos on your computer, using a media application such as Windows Media Player. You will be connected to audio using your computer’s speakers.  If you are unable to access the audio over your computer speakers, you may select “Use Telephone” after joining the webinar.  Using the telephone for audio is a toll charge.  If you have questions about the technical aspects of the webinar, please contact the Help Desk at gabhelpdesk@wi.gov or (608) 261-2028.               

The webinar has a maximum of 500 participants.  In response to input from clerks, phones will
