If you require complete customization of your notice text, instead of just the ability to add additional instructions, select the Advanced Customization option on the Notice page.

Adding Variables to Your Notice Template

Variables can be typed out manually (ex. {{election_name}}), or inserted using the "Variables" box. To insert a variable:

If you are translating the notice into another language, do not translate the variable names . For example, do not change {{password}} to {{mot_de_passe}} or the value will not be displayed.

Required Notice Variables

You can remove variables by deleting them from the body of the template. However, some variables cannot be removed because they required during validation. The required variables are:

  • {{ballot_link}} or {{Meeting_page_link}}:

  • {{organization_name}}

  • {{election_name}}

Content Restrictions

  • When using hyperlinks, you must include http:// or https:// in the link, or the link will not work properly.

  • Emojis and emoticons are not supported.

Variables from Your Voter List

If you are uploading a CSV you can use the columns in your file to generate new variables!

For example, a Voter List with address details, can be used to populate address information on the notice, or on any other display area that uses the variable menu.

The "Preview" button will then pull the data from the first line of your voter list to show you what this will look like to your voters.

Previewing Your Template

To see the notice with actual data, select the Preview for the notice type you are editing. The preview will be displayed using data from your Voter List.

Reminder Customization

If you have enabled Advanced Customization for notices, you will automatically be able to customize you reminder emails

Reminders cannot be configured until you election has been started, and it managed from the Actions menu on the Results page, where you will monitor your live election.
