Welcome to G.A.B. Survey and Reporting Website

Respond to This Survey: Clerk Training Survey 

We are surveying county and municipal clerks to determine your needs for Baseline Chief Inspector training for new chief inspectors and Municipal Clerk Core training for new municipal clerks prior to the 2014 fall elections. We will continue to utilize a combination of certified clerk-trainers and online live webinars for instruction. 

We are also developing another series of election administration and SVRS training webinars and would appreciate your feedback about topics we should cover and any other suggestions you may have to improve the webinars to make them more useful to you as education and training tools. 

This survey also asks county and municipal clerks if you need SVRS Application and/or Absentee Process training.  SVRS training is on the computer application for clerks who are providers and self-providers of SVRS services (entering GAB-131s, printing poll books, for example).  If you do not perform these tasks in SVRS, you rely on the county or another municipality for SVRS services and this training is not intended for you.  Scheduling and seating priority will be given to clerks new to SVRS.

If you need assistance or have any questions, please contact Allison Coakley at or (608) 261-2033. 



 Respond to This Survey: Voting Equipment
The Help America Vote Act (2002), requires all polling places to have an accessible component which provides independent and private voting for all individuals including those with disabilities.  Additionally, Wis. Stat. §5.40(1) requires that the governing body or board of election commissioners of every municipality with a population of 10,000 or more before July 1, 1995, or of 7,500 or more thereafter shall require the use of voting machines or electronic voting systems in every ward in the municipality at every election.  Any other governing body or board of election commissioners may adopt and purchase voting machines or electronic voting systems for use in any ward in the municipality at any election.
Accordingly, municipal clerks who have purchased electronic voting equipment must report the acquired system to county clerks and the elections division administrator of the Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.). Wis. Stat. §5.40(7) requires municipal clerks or the executive director of the municipal board of election commissioners to notify the county clerk or the executive director of the county board of election commissioners and the administrator of the elections division of the Board in writing… whenever a municipality adopts and purchases voting machines or an electronic voting system, or adopts and purchases a different type of voting machine, or electronic voting system from the type it was previously using.
To assist with these reporting requirements, the G.A.B. has created this Voting System Reporting form. The voting system reporting guide provides information to assist clerks in obtaining the answers to the required questions.  If you have any additional questions regarding completing the form, please contact Voting Equipment Elections Specialist Sherri Ann Charleston at (608) 267-0714 or  Additionally, the GAB Help Desk can be reached at, or at (608) 261-2028.
