ElectionBuddy's default variables, and what information they populate, are:

  • {{ballot_id}} — populates each voter's ballot ID as per your voter list.

  • {{election_end_date}} — populates your vote's current end date. If you extend your vote, the date will update accordingly on your ballot when using this variable.

  • {{election_name}} — populates your vote's name.

  • {{election_start_date}} — populates your vote's start date.

  • {{election_time_zone}} — populates your vote's time zone as per the time zone you are using on the Details page of your vote's setup.

  • {{organization_name}} — populates your organization's name.

  • {{user_email}} — populates the ElectionBuddy account email address (i.e. the administrator's email address, as per your account settings).
