2022 CAMPAIGN FINANCE UPDATE WEBINARS

The New York State Board of Elections is pleased to announce the following schedule of live webinar dates to demonstrate the EFS Web Application to filers (more dates will be added in the coming months):

  • Tuesday, January 11, 2022 - 10:00am - 12:30pm
  • Wednesday, February 16, 2022 - 1:00pm - 3:30pm
  • Thursday, March 24, 2022 - 10:00am - 12:30pm

Each of these webinars will include an identical presentation. We are pleased to offer these various options to fit into your schedule.

This webinar will focus specifically on the Electronic Filing System - how to set-up your account, use the filer dashboard, enter transaction data, submit and amend reports, and provide other kinds of notices/documentation.

Pre-registration is REQUIRED for these webinars. Click here to register for the webinar. Each webinar will be conducted using Webex. Prior to the event, you will receive an email invitation from us to attend the webinar via Webex. There is nothing that needs to be done when you receive the email; simply have it nearby at the webinar time. You will be able to click to join the meeting right from the email.

Please note that you will likely have to “run a temporary application” to join the Webex. There is no need to install anything; running the application will allow you to access the Cisco interface and see the presentation we will be sharing.

The Webex allows attendees three options for accessing the audio of the webinar - you can call into the webinar with the phone number given, you can have the webinar call you at a number you provide, or you can call in via your computer.

There will be an on-screen chat feature where attendees can type questions.

Please note that these webinars will not offer any CPE/CLE credit.

We look forward to presenting the EFS Web Application training webinar with you!
