We recently released our “Building on the Basics” election administration webinar training series schedule.  Due to positive feedback from county and municipal clerks regarding this method of training, we have developed a new webinar training series that focuses on the Statewide Voter Registration System.  The fifth webinar in our SVRS training series is: 

Webinar for County and Municipal Clerks
WEDCS & Canvass
Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Web link: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/527965713
 

In this webinar we will review the new GAB-190-F (for federal elections), GAB-190NF (for non-federal elections), GAB-191 (election-specific cost report), GAB-192 (annual election cost report), and the GAB-190 Help Guide.  We will discuss timelines and improvements to WEDCS.  This webinar will also give an overview of the Canvass Reporting System and explain how municipalities can use the system for reporting and certifying local election results.  

Reference materials for the webinar have been posted as an attachment to this memo (above).  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.
