Voters have the ability to change the display language while they are casting their ballot. If you have edited the default text for your primary language, the other voter language choices selected here on the ballot, will remain as the ElectionBuddy default text.
Primary Language Selection
The primary language for your vote is selected on the Details page during setup, and will determine the default language in which the ballot is displayed.
Ballot Page Setup
The voter can choose switch the language from the language menu at the top of the ballot, and all navigation and instructions to submit their vote will be provided in the language selected.
However, our default instructions can be augmented with custom instructions by the administrator. This is essential for providing direction for processes that fall outside the voting process.
To add additional instructions there are several places in which to enter custom text.
The ballot has an optional text area where custom instructions can be added. Add your additional requirements in all languages you require.
Ballot Question Instructions
For each question on your ballot, you can add additional instructions below the standard instructions. Keep in mind that the standard instructions will be displayed in the language selected by the voter. Provide additional instructions in as many languages as required for your voters.
