Estimated reading time: 1 min

As of 2 November 2023, users now have the ability to duplicate a ballot if they are creating a ballot with similar contents. Duplicating a ballot carries over the same position names that were entered in the original ballot, but NOT the same candidates or term dates. Candidates and term dates can be added when editing the new ballot.
