In October 2013, the G.A.B. launched its second year of election administration education and training
using webinar programming. The eighth webinar in our “Building on the Basics” Election
Administration training series is:
 
 
Webinar for County, Municipal Clerks and Election Inspectors
Preparing for the April Election
Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
 
The Preparing for the April Election 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:
 
  • Polling Place Accessibility Update
  • Pre-Election Preparation and Polling Place Set-Up (video demonstration)
  • MyVote Wisconsin Notifications
  • Voter Registration and Proof of Residence
  • Absentee Voting Overview and Deadlines
  • MBOC/Processing Late-Arriving Ballots
 
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/educationtraining/
webinars. The training counts toward clerk recertification whether you participate in the live
webinar or review the recording at a later date.
