Last month, the G.A.B. launched its second year of election administration education and training using webinar programming.  The fourth webinar in our “Building on the Basics” Election Administration training series is:  

Webinar for County, Municipal Clerks and Election Inspectors
What’s New for the 2014 Elections?

Wednesday, December 11, 2013, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Web link:  https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/925050328

The What’s New for the 2014 Elections? 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 county and municipal clerks:  

  • Legislative Updates
  • Status of Voter Photo ID
  • GAB-190 Election Data Reporting
  • Appointing Election Inspectors
  • Annexations
  • Accessibility at the Polls
  • Spring 2014 Contest Setup in SVRS
  • Q & A – Bring your questions about anything election-related!

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