In October 2013, the G.A.B. launched its second year of election administration education and training using webinar programming. The seventh webinar in our “Building on the Basics” Election Administration training series is: 
 
Webinar for County, Municipal Clerks and Election Inspectors
Election Day Duties: Demonstrations!

Web link: https://www1.gotowebinar.com/register/158246001
 
The Election Day Duties: Demonstrations 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: 
 
       -  Pre-Election Preparations & Polling Place Set-up
       -  Voting Equipment Testing & Security (video demonstration)
- Voter Registration and the Voting Process
- Challenging an Elector (video demonstration)
- Provisional Voting (video demonstration)
- End of Night Procedures
 
            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 recertification whether you participate in the live webinar or review the recording at a later date.
