Election Layout Options

In this article, you will learn about the options available for the Election's Layout.

Layout Options

When creating an election, you can choose between four different layouts.

Drop Down

This option is good when you have a lot of candidates or nominations. The drop down menus are searchable so a user can start typing a name to quickly get to the student they want.


Select Multiple

You can use the Layout option as Select Multiple for allowing your students to choose more than one candidate.

The system will keep a track of how many candidates they students have selected and will not let them select any more once they get down to 0 for each candidate.

Picture View

This view works well when you want the voters to see all candidates or options at one time.

We do not recommend this view when you are doing nominations or have a list of 30 or more per position because the webpage will get very long (and students will have to scroll a lot).

Rating Scale

This option is designed when you want to get a ranking for each candidate or option.

This works well for surveys asking questions like how safe do you feel on campus and they can rate from 1-10 with 1 being low and 10 being high.
