Monday, July 30, 2012: 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
 
 
The Preparing for the August Partisan Primary Webinar will cover specific topics related to the upcoming primary that merit additional clarification, based on requests from clerks and the experiences of and lessons learned from June Recall election: 
 

                -Counting Votes at the August Partisan Primary
                -Proof of Residence
                -Signing the Poll List

             clerks to print off.   
 
         Live Webinar Requirements
Participants must be able to view videos on their computer, using a media application such as Windows Media Player. You will need to use your telephone to access the audio portion of the webinar, rather than using the computer's audio functionality. This is a toll call. 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 lines available. In response to input from clerks, phones           
            will be muted to reduce ambient noise. Questions may be typed in and will be answered by G.A.B.
            staff for the benefit of the participants as time allows. 
 
This webinar will be posted on the G.A.B. website after the session for clerks to use for their own education and training their election inspectors, http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/education-  training/webinars and counts toward the hours clerks and chief inspectors need to recertify for their respective terms. 
 
We look forward to you joining us for the webinar on Monday. As announced in our July 19, 2012 clerk communication, this webinar is the first in an Election Administration Training series that we will have scheduled and posted by mid-August. If you have ideas or suggestions for webinar topics, please send them to Allison Coakley: allison.coakley@wi.gov by August 10, 2012.  Thank you.
