How to Copy and Paste a Voter List
Ensure the voter list is properly formatted, to avoid any problems.
Select all relevant columns within your sheet.
Avoid selecting column headings (usually the first row in your list).
If you have columns that don't match the ElectionBuddy columns, it is easiest to remove them in Excel before copying.
Copy the selected cells in Excel using keyboard shortcuts.
Open ElectionBuddy, access the voter list table and paste the copied list into the upper left cell.
You don't need to select all the cells, just the upper left one.
To review your list, select or click outside the field.
Validate the data within the list by selecting the "Validate List" button.
Any errors will be highlighted just under the Validate List Button.
Only copy and paste the columns in Excel that match the columns in ElectionBuddy.
See the example below for a 2-column copy and paste of ID and Email
If you have errors and your list has a lot of rows (>100), instead of fixing the list in ElectionBuddy, it is easier to edit your Excel list and copy and paste it a second time.
