In each notice template, ElectionBuddy includes default variables based on the setup and features used that auto-populate important and required vote information. This ensures voters receive all the necessary details and access credentials required to access the ballot and cast their vote.

When any of the below variables show in the notices they should not be removed, and changes should not be made between the {{ }} as this will impact the variables auto-populating and result in notice delivery issues.

  • {{ballot_id}} - Each voter's Ballot ID that was included in your voter list.
