Ward Chair Training
Preparing for Ward & Precinct Elections


Everyone planning to participate in the upcoming March 23 Ward & Precinct Election is encouraged to attend one of these training sessions.  The processes used in these elections can seem complex, and there have also been some rule changes, so these sessions are designed to help you understand the process better. 


Ward Chairs must attend at least one training. After the training session you can pick up your sealed packet to be used at your ward meeting.


Be sure to attend one of these four Training Sessions:
