Thank you for the positive feedback about the 2013-2014 Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS) Training webinar series.  We have developed the second in our series of SVRS training webinars and will kick it off with an update on recent legislative changes and how they impact SVRS and your work as a clerk. 

Webinar for County and Municipal Clerks

2014 SVRS Legislative Updates
Wednesday, July 16, 2014, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Web link: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/284267648

This webinar will cover the recent legislative changes as they relate to SVRS, including recording proof of residence in SVRS, Election Day registration postcards, reporting units, as well as a brief introduction to next year’s 4-year maintenance process. Please note that this training series is targeted to clerks who provide or self-provide SVRS services. 

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.
