You can re-open a closed scheduled vote within seven days, which allows your voters to continue voting until the new end date without requiring new access keys.

To re-open your vote:

  • Go to the Results Page

  • Select Reopen Vote from the Actions dropdown menu:

  • Edit the end time to meet your needs in the Edit window

  • Select Confirm to re-open your vote

Important to note:

  • While a vote can be re-opened within 7 days of its closing when using the Schedule Start and End time, if your vote uses the Manual Start option, the window of time to re-open will elapse 480 minutes after the vote has started.

  • If the vote closes and would like to re-open it, you may do so but only within that 480-minute window.

Notices are not resent when re-opening a vote. Please contact your voters to inform them of the re-opened vote or send a reminder through ElectionBuddy.

For any questions, please send us a chat using our Buddy Messenger in the bottom right of the screen.
