How to Add a Post

You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Elections Admin can access the Edit Posts window.

Before proceeding, the Group linked to the Post must already exist in your MSL System.

If the Post has been used in a previous Election, the Full Description may already contain some content. We recommend checking, and updating the content, if applicable.
