UWGB Offers Presidential Election Academy – Door County Pulse
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is offering a Presidential Election Academy over the course of two-and-a-half days in November of this year to prepare local officials on election preparation, election polling operations and duties after the polls close. Registration is now open.
Wisconsin is predicted to be a “battleground” state in next year’s November 2024 presidential election. Wisconsin will also hold Democratic and Republican primary elections on April 2, 2024. Between 2000 and 2012, Wisconsin supported Republican candidates in 48.4% of presidential elections, tying with support for Democratic candidates at 48.4%.
The high-profile nature of the election will put local communities and polling places under pressure to ensure a faultless voting experience and result. To support area communities, the UW-Green Bay Presidential Election Academy participants will have numerous topics to choose from. Upon successful completion of sessions, participants can earn a UW-Green Bay Presidential Election badge.
Registration for the Presidential Election Academy is now open and affordable. To learn more. Visit uwgb.edu/govt/ or contact Laura Nolan, executive regional manager for business and government outreach, at 920.465.2772 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Presidential Election Academy is sponsored by the Division of Continuing Education and Community Engagement.
