This webinar will feature the MyVote Wisconsin website, as well as the systems that help support MyVote.  We will cover Click and Mail, MyVote features for Military and Overseas Voters, and we will talk about the various utilities in SVRS and CRM that provide information to MyVote.  We will also cover how to track Military and Overseas ballots using Absentee Lite in SVRS.

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:  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.
