What is a Voter Education Ambassador? 

Voter Education Ambassadors are Special Registration Deputies who complete additional training offered by the City Clerk.  This training empowers Ambassadors to provide complete and accurate answers to frequently asked questions about the voting process, absentee ballots, voter residency, accessibility, and more. 

Ambassadors share the City Clerk’s Office goal for all eligible voters to be able to cast a ballot, and for that ballot to be counted.  They volunteer to work with the City Clerk’s Office and other Voter Education Ambassadors on voter outreach efforts, voter registration drives, and the recruitment of additional Special Registration Deputies throughout the City of Madison.
