Managing Ballots and Motions

You are here:
Estimated reading time: 2 min

You can manage a Ballot or Motion that is already in progress, or, “Active.” The process is the same for both types of voting.

The following options are available while the ballot/motion is active:

  • Update the ballot close date/time
  • Print the ballot in HTML or PDF format (to use as paper ballots)
  • Send an email to voters or view the email log
  • View the number of members who have voted/voter turnout

When the ballot is closed, you can also use Manage to add manual votes.

NOTE: Only the Election Manager will have access to the “Manage” features. This is to maintain the integrity of the election process.

To view and print the ballot in PDF or HTML format (for distributing paper ballots), click one of the options in the menu. The PDF/HTML will show on the screen where you can then print out the ballot.
